Mobile Genetic Elements: Protocols and Genomic Applications, 2nd Edition

Transposable elements are used as genetic tools for dissecting the function of a specific gene and elaborating on mechanisms leading to genetic change and diversity, and the evolutionary impact of mobile DNA on the biology and evolution of organism. Mobile Genetic Elements: Protocols and Genomic Applications, Second Edition gathers a wide array of strategies and protocols for identifying transposable elements (TEs) and their evolutionary derivatives, and for studying genome structure, function, and evolution. Written in the Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, the chapters include the kind of detailed description and implementation advice that is crucial for getting optimal results in the laboratory.

Mobile Genetic Elements: Protocols and Genomic Applications, Second Edition aids scientists in the continuing study of in silico tools, strategies and protocols that are complementary of those described in the first volume.
