  • Comparative genomics has revealed that major vertebrate lineages contain quantitatively and qualitatively different populations of retrotransposable elements and DNA transposons, with important differences also frequently observed between species of the same lineage. This is essentially due to (i) the differential evolution of ancestral families of transposable elements, with evolutionary scenarios ranging from complete extinction to massive invasion; (ii) the lineage-specific introduction of… CONTINUE READING
