    ..There is also a retrotransposon located at the 3' end of each Sdic gene copy. We argue that this gene cluster was formed in the last two million years by at least three tandem duplications and one retrotransposition event...

    ..The life history of the RT1C elements in the genome of D. melanogaster was used to determine the insertion chronology of the elements in the cluster and to date the duplication events that originated this cluster...
