The discovery of transposable elements (TEs) by Barbara McClintock in the 1940s, triggered a new dawning in the development of evolutionary theory. However, similar to Gregor Mendel’s development of the laws of heredity in the nineteenth century, it was a long time before the full significance of this discovery was appreciated. Nevertheless, by the beginning of the 21st century, the study and recognition of TEs as significant factors in evolution was well underway. However, many evolutionary… CONTINUE READING
