The role of mobile genetic elements in the evolution of cyanobacteria


Possible pathways of cyanobacterial evolution are discussed on the basis of in silico analysis of the fully sequenced genomes of 45 species/strains of cyanobacteria. Information on the quantity and functions of different mobile elements (IS, MITE elements, and group II introns) has been reviewed. A positive correlation between entire genome sizes and the… (More)
