This new edition of the bestselling series on movable genetic elements highlights the many exciting advances in the field over the last decade, including conservative site-specific recombination, programmed rearrangements, DNA-only transposons, and LTR, and non-LTR retrotransposons. Virtually all organisms contain multiple mobile DNAs that can move from place to place, and in some organisms, mobile DNA elements make up a significant portion of the genome. Mobile DNA III provides a comprehensive review of recent research, revealing the many important roles that mobile DNAs play in genome structure, function, and evolution. Mobile DNA is part three of a series on mobile DNA.
"Mobile DNA III provides a one-stop-shop for anyone wanting to keep abreast of current understanding of the activity of these elements and the enzymes that they encode. It should will be an invaluable resource for some time to come."
