Transposable elements often accumulate in nonrecombining regions, such as Y chromosomes. Contrary to this trend, a new Silene retrotransposon described here, has spread recently all over the genome of plant Silene latifolia, except its Y chromosome. This coincided with the latest steps of sex chromosome evolution in this species.
FingerprintDive into the research topics of 'Recent Spread of a Retrotransposon in the Silene latifolia Genome, Apart From the Y Chromosome.'. Together they form a unique fingerprint.
