Impact of transposable elements on insect genomes and biology [link]Website  abstract   bibtex   
Transposable elements (TEs), also known as ‘jumping DNA’, contribute a significant part of most eukaryotic genomes. In insects, TE content largely explains genome size variation. While most TEs lack apparent functions, it is becoming increasingly evident that they are a major source of genetic innovation. Computational approaches that facilitate the detection of the assortment of TEs in genomes and advances in DNA sequencing are quickly revealing the secrets of repetitive DNA. This short review aims to provide a non-exhaustive overview of some current approaches for the detection of TEs and some remarkable cases illustrating their abundance and impact on genome organization and evolution.
