Plant genome size variation: bloating and purging DNA

Briefings in Functional Genomics

Mar 22, 2014

Todd P Michael

Abstract

Plant genome size variation is a dynamic process of bloating and purging DNA. While it was thought plants were on a path to obesity through continual DNA bloating, recent research supports that most plants activity purge DNA. Plant genome size research has greatly benefited from the cat...read more

DNA Repair

DNA repair is critical to prevent detrimental mutations and maintain genomic stability that can otherwise lead to disease and disability. There are a number of different mechanisms of repair including base excision repair, direct repair, nucleotide excision repair and double-strand break repair. Discover the latest research on DNA repair here.

Eating Disorders

Eating disorders-including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and eating disorders that are not otherwise specified, which include binge eating disorder-are challenging health issues. Here is the latest research on eating disorders.

DNA Methylation (Keystone)

DNA methylation is an epigenetic mechanism of gene regulation, and dysregulation of DNA methylation has been associated with tumorigenesis. Discover the latest research on DNA methylation here.

Transposable Elements

Transposable elements (tes) have profound effects on the structure, function and evolution of their host genomes.

DNA Methylation

DNA methylation is an epigenetic mechanism of gene regulation, and dysregulation of DNA methylation has been associated with tumorigenesis. Discover the latest research on DNA methylation here.

Chromosomal Duplication

Chromosomal duplication is a result of extra genetic material within the area of the chromosome. The duplication may have no effect or may be expressed in the phenotype of that individual. Some duplications are thought to be of evolutionary selection. Discover the latest research on chromosomal duplication here.
