Phylogenetic perspective reveals abundant Ty1/Ty2 hybrid elements in the Saccharomyces cerevisiae genome.


Retrotransposons are a class of repetitive mobile elements which transpose via the reverse transcription of an RNA intermediate (Boeke et al. 1985). These eukaryotic elements are abundant and widespread and are hypothesized to be of major evolutionary significance (Miller, Kruckenhauser, and Pinsker 1996; Kidwell and Lisch 1997; McDonald 1998). The yeast Ty… (More)
