Transposons are usually present in multiple copies in their hosts’ genomes. Recombination between two transposon copies can result in chromosomal rearrangements. Here, we describe a recombination event between two copies of the retrotransposon ANiTa1 within the genome of the fungus Aspergillus niger (strain CBS513.88). The observed chromosomal rearrangement appears to be strain-specific, as the corresponding genomic region in another strain, ATCC1015, shows a different organization. Strain… CONTINUE READING
