Epigenetic silencing of transposable elements: a trade-off between reduced transposition and deleterious effects on neighboring gene expression

Genome Research

May 30, 2009

Jesse D Hollister, Brandon S Gaut

Abstract

Transposable elements (TEs) are ubiquitous genomic parasites. The deleterious consequences of the presence and activity of TEs have fueled debate about the evolutionary forces countering their expansion. Purifying selection is thought to purge TE insertions from the genome, and TE seque...read more
