- Interspersed repeats and other mementos of transposable elements in mammalian genomesA F Smit
Axys Pharmaceuticals, Inc, La Jolla, 92037 1029, USA
Curr Opin Genet Dev 9:657-63. 1999..The many new examples of human genes derived from single transposon insertions highlight the large contribution of selfish DNA to genomic evolution...
- The origin of interspersed repeats in the human genomeA 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...
- Comparative analyses of multi-species sequences from targeted genomic regionsJ W Thomas
Genome Technology Branch, National Human Genome Research Institute, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland 20892, USA

Department of Biology, Beckman Research Institute of the City of Hope, Duarte, CA 91010, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 93:1443-8. 1996..We further identified relatively low-copy-number mariner elements in both human and sheep DNA. These belong to two subfamilies previously identified in insect genomes, suggesting lateral transfer between diverse species...
