General Information

Genome evolution is inextricably linked to the evolution of transposons that reside within. It is increasingly recognised that these selfish mobile elements play major roles in genome regulation. This meeting will discuss how transposons have shaped host gene regulation, both through their evolutionary conflict with the host, and through the dispersal of new coding and non-coding sequences with strong regulatory potential.
