Parallel evolution of conserved non-coding elements that target a common set of developmental regulatory genes from worms to humans

Genome Biology

Feb 6, 2007

Tanya VavouriGreg Elgar

Abstract

The human genome contains thousands of non-coding sequences that are often more conserved between vertebrate species than protein-coding exons. These highly conserved non-coding elements (CNEs) are associated with genes that coordinate development, and have been proposed to act as trans...read more
