Abstract:

Annotation

What we now know about mobile DNA--and the substantial roles it plays in humans, animals, and plants.<br /> & bull;<br /> & bull;Mobile DNA accounts for more than half of our genome: This book explains the important role it plays in shaping evolutionary change.<br /> & bull;A rich, thorough, and accessible introduction for all serious students, practitioners, and researchers in human and medical genetics, molecular biology, or evolutionary biology.<br /> & bull;By one of the field's leading researchers, Dr. Haig Kazazian. This book thoroughly reviews our current scientific understanding of the significant role that mobile genetic elements play in the evolution and function of genomes and organisms--from plants and animals to humans. Highly regarded geneticist Haig Kazazian offers an accessible intellectual history of the field's research strategies and concerns, explaining how advances opened up new questions, and how new tools and capabilities have encouraged progress in the field. Kazazian introduces the key strategies and approaches taken in leading laboratories (including his own) to gain greater insight into the large proportion of our genome that derives from mobile genetic elements, including viruses, plasmids, and transposons. He also presents intriguing insights into long-term research strategies that may lead to an even deeper understanding.
