'Jumping genes' key to evolution, researchers reveal - Deccan Chronicle


Deccan Chronicle
Washington: Turns out, almost half of our DNA sequences are made up of jumping genes, which are also known as transposons. Transposons is a DNA sequence that changes its position within a genome, sometimes creating or reversing mutations and ...
