transposable elements in yeast

Postby youknowwho1 » Fri Sep 19, 2008 3:01 am

"Yeast genomes show extensive loss of introns and a reduced role of transposable elements, and so probably have a more limited potential to form novel genes and functions than multicellular organisms, possibly explaining their conserved biological and morphological properties despite their considerable evolutionary range".

why is there a reduced role of transposable elements in Yeast?
