The symposium aims to facilitate the development of this emerging view by bringing together world-leading experts from diverse areas of biology including genomics, structural biology, microbiology, developmental biology, plant biology and neurobiology.
The meeting will stimulate interdisciplinary discussions on various key topics, including:
- The impact of mobile DNA on genome structure and evolution
- Novel advances in the mechanism of transposition and transposon defense
- Developmental and physiological roles of transposition.
These discussions will facilitate multi-disciplinary collaborations and greatly improve the common understanding of mobile genetic elements, as well as genome structure and function in general.
