Abstract

This essay addresses the paradoxes of the complex and highly redundant genomes. The central theses developed are that: (1) the distinctive feature of complex genomes is the existence of epigenetic mechanisms that permit extremely high levels of both tandem and dispersed redundancy; (2) ...read more

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.

Evolution of Gene Regulation

The evolution from single-celled to multicellular organisms required precise control of genes and gave cells the ability to be programmed for specific functions. Discover the latest research on Evolution of Gene Regulation here.

Evolution of Gene Regulation (Keystone)

The evolution from single-celled to multicellular organisms required precise control of genes and gave cells the ability to be programmed for specific functions. Discover the latest research on the evolution of gene regulation and gene regulation in Drosophila in this feed.

Transposons for Gene Editing

Transposons can replicate and spread through the host’s genome and therefore be used as a genetic tool for analysis of gene function. Discover the latest research on the use of transposons for gene editing here.

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.

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.

Whole Genome and Gene Duplications in Evolution

Gene and whole-genome duplications have occurred repeatedly and broadly throughout the evolutionary history of eukaryotes. Discover the latest research on Whole Genome and Gene Duplications in Evolution here.

Transposable Elements

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