    A F Smit
    Axys Pharmaceuticals, Inc, La Jolla, 92037 1029, USA
    Curr Opin Genet Dev 9:657-63. 1999

    A F Smit
    Department of Molecular Biotechnology, University of Washington, Seattle 98195, USA
    Curr Opin Genet Dev 6:743-8. 1996
    ..The emerging concept is that only three mechanisms of amplification are responsible for the vast majority of interspersed repeats and that with each autonomous element a number of dependent non-autonomous sequences have co-amplified...
