About this Research Topic
In this topic we are interested in understanding the various molecular mechanisms that contribute to the normal or aberrant mobility of genetic elements, including studies in model organisms. In addition, studies that provide insight regarding how these elements may normally or aberrantly impact the stability of the genome such as during development or stem cell differentiation and additionally studies that implicate how these elements impact tumor biology or other diseases will be of significance.
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements.
