Retrotransposons and tobacco genetic diversity
INRA, Laboratoire de Biologie Cellulaire, Versailles, France
Retrotransposons are mobile genetic elements that amplify via reverse transcription of an RNA intermediate. They insert at different positions in host genomes and can be amplified to high copy number. They are thus an important source of genetic diversity ...
