About this book

The chromosomes of living organisms were once thought to be very stable with changes in genetic content infrequent and generally small. We now know all chromosomes contain a multitude of mobile genetic elements that can change position, cause mutation and proliferate. This study describes how such elements can influence the biology and evolution of all organisms and provides unifying information on the mechanisms of element mobility. Moreover, the book contains methodologies for using mobile genetic elements as tools in the analysis of gene structure and function.

Contents

1. The discovery and significance of mobile genetic elements; 2. Mechanisms of DNA transposition; 3. Transposable elements as tools for molecular analyses in bacteria; 4. Eukaryotic transposable elements as tools to study gene structure and function; 5. Topological selectivity in site-specific recombination; 6. Transposable elements as selfish DNA; 7. Retrons in bacteria

The book is generally clearly written and well illustrated ... . I especially enjoyed, and recommend to all those interested in the history of modern biology, the opening chapter, by James Shapiro. -- Science
