Characterization of Transposable Elements

By Wan-Ying Chang
Assistant Professor, California State University, Fullerton

DNA transposable elements are mobile elements that can move from one position in a genome to another. Traditionally, transposable elements were identified and analyzed through genetic and molecular studies. With the availability of sequence information and bioinformatic tools, we are able to apply computational methods for the identification and characterization of transposable elements. In our study, we survey transposable elements from several existing databases and develop several systems of classifications. Under each classification scheme we conduct sequence comparison, structural analysis, and phylogenetic inference. Our findings will further understanding the mechanism of mobility and origins of the most abundant transposable elements.
