Molecular characterization of two natural hotspots in the Drosophila buzzatii genome induced by transposon insertions.

Transposable elements (TEs) have been implicated in the generation of genetic rearrangements, but their potential to mediate changes in the organization and architecture of host genomes could be even greater than previously thought. Here, we describe the naturally occurring structural and nucleotide variation around two TE insertions in the genome of… CONTINUE READING
