Featured article - Contrasted patterns of evolution of the LINE-1 retrotransposon in perissodactyls: the history of a LINE-1 extinction

A detailed study on the evolution of L1 in perissodactyls via the complete genome of the domestic horse and white rhinoceros.  This is an excellent model to study the extinction of L1 since the rhinoceros is one of the few mammalian species to have lost active L1.

Aims and scope

Mobile DNA is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that publishes articles providing novel insights into DNA rearrangements in all organisms, ranging from transposition and other types of recombination mechanisms to patterns and processes of mobile element and host genome evolution. In addition, the journal will consider articles on the utility of mobile genetic elements in biotechnological methods and protocols.

Pre-submission Inquiries

The Editors-in-Chief of Mobile DNA welcome authors to send any pre-submission inquiries they might have to the Editorial Email address, which can be found here. We ask that you please include “Pre-submission inquiry” in the subject line of your email and that you include the title and abstract of your proposed submission within the message. Our Editors will do their best to respond to you in a timely manner.

Transposable Elements Conference

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory will be holding its second meeting on “Transposable Elements” November 1-8, 2018 at Cold Spring Harbor, NY.  The primary goal of the meeting is to provide a forum for presentation of the latest research into transposable elements, and will consist of six oral sessions plus one poster session.  Sessions will be made up of invited talks and talks selected from the openly submitted abstracts. 

The organizers for this conference are:

Rob Martienssen, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory
Phoebe Rice, University of Chicago
Donald Rio, University of California, Berkeley

The abstract deadline is August 10, 2018.
