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.
Updated monthly, check out the newest published research on transposable elements in the TE Digest on Alexander Suh of Uppsala University's Genomicrocosm page here.
