Periodic Report - RETROELEMENTS (Diversity generating retroelements – Understanding a new class of mobile RNAs)

Project ID: 248023
Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE

Abstract

This document is an attachment to the periodic report of the RETROELEMENTS project, which was funded under the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) and aimed to study retroelements, a ubiquitous class of genetic elements that is found in all domains of life and has a major role in the evolution, organisation and expansion of genomes.

The document includes a figure that presents the structure and mutagenic mechanisms of the Diversity-generating retroelements (DGRs), which were analysed as part of the project. The obtained results were estimated to have the potential for a significant impact in various disciplinary fields.
