Re: Gene Rearrangement and Evolution

... the Alu sequence. The Alu sequence is approximately 300 bases long and can be found between 300,000 and a million times in the human genome." Transposition may result in the inactivation or changes in gene expression at the site of expression. There's a few things to go look at further. Not ...
