Re: microsatellite instability

OK, another question: I can see how insertion/deletion can be detected by fragment analysis, but incorporation of a wrong nucleotide wouldn't cause change in the length of amplicon, so can that also be detected by fragment analysis?

How

... of what you want to do. But technically if you just want to have 2genes one after the next to insert you could either plasmids with multiple insertion sites, make your construction in those (easy) then excise the double insert and transfer it to the genomic DNA as you would do. If you want ...

Re: Locus specificity and ERVs - Q from a creationist

... are the major players and drivers of evolution. When they insert into host genome, they can alter host genes located at and around the insertion point - they can disrupt genes, activate genes, alter gene expression.

Inserting cDNA into a retroviral vector?..

you will hardly insert dsDNA into ssRNA. You have to make RNA from it and that use for the insertion. But you have to be aware whether your retrovirus contains + or - RNA strand.
