    ..Furthermore, RC-seq can be used to detect and characterize somatic insertions, providing a valuable tool to elucidate the extent and characteristics of MGE activity in healthy tissues and in various disease states. ..
  4. Gerdes P, Richardson S, Mager D, Faulkner G. Transposable elements in the mammalian embryo: pioneers surviving through stealth and service. Genome Biol. 2016;17:100 pubmed publisher
    ..Here, we discuss recent evidence suggesting that TEs may contribute regulatory innovation to mammalian embryonic and pluripotent states as a means to ward off complete repression by their host genome. ..
  5. Richardson S, Morell S, Faulkner G. L1 retrotransposons and somatic mosaicism in the brain. Annu Rev Genet. 2014;48:1-27 pubmed publisher
    ..Finally, we discuss the unresolved impact of L1-mediated somatic mosaicism upon normal neurobiology, as well as its potential to drive neurological disease. ..
