New Genes Can Form From ‘Jumping Gene Fusions

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, genetics

Some genes don’t stay in the same place in the genome. Sometimes called jumping genes or transposons, this genetic material can hop around and rearrange itself | Genetics And Genomics.


Some genetic sequences don’t stay in the same place in the genome. Sometimes called jumping genes or transposons, this genetic material can hop around and rearrange itself to create new sequences. Some transposons even encode for their own enzymes, and these co-called transposases can edit the genome by cutting sequences from one place and pasting them to another.
