  • A family of transposable elements belonging to the hAT group of DNA transposons is described from an oomycete, the plant pathogen Phytophthora infestans. The family, named DodoPi, was identified by studying a hotspot for retro- and DNA transposon insertions adjacent to the mating type locus. The DodoPi family comprises a small number of full-length copies, each of which is 2.7 kb long and predicted to encode a transposase-like protein consisting of 617 amino acids, and several truncated copies… CONTINUE READING
