Symposium - Heidelberg, Germany
Various mechanisms have evolved throughout the tree of life to defend genomes from the deleterious effects of transposition. Curiously, the past couple of years have brought about seminal discoveries showing that transposons also have functions essential to their host. For example, they play key roles in mammalian development, neurogenesis, and immune response.
These novel findings suggest that transposons have widespread vital functions and call for thorough investigation in all genomes and organisms.
The proposed symposium aims to facilitate the development of this emerging view by bringing together world-leading experts from diverse areas of biology including genomics, structural biology, microbiology, developmental biology, plant biology and neurobiology.
