    J Mol Evol 68:80-9. 2009
    ..Our results are undoubtedly conservative but suggest that TEs may have contributed small protein segments to as many as 1.2% of all expressed, annotated A. thaliana genes...

    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of California, Irvine, USA
    BMC Evol Biol 10:10. 2010
    ..We analyzed seven TE families in four natural populations of each species to tease apart the effects of mating system, demography, transposition, and selection in determining patterns of TE diversity...

    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 105:13965-70. 2008
    ..Overall, we propose that TEs are subjected to weak selection, the efficacy of which varies as a function of demographic factors. Thus, demographic effects could be a major factor driving distributions of TEs among plant lineages...
