This book documents the remarkable mobility of DNAs in procaryotic and eucaryotic genomes: the ability of various DNA segments to move to new sites, to invert, and to undergo deletion or amplification, generally without the extensive DNA sequence homology needed for classical recombination. Its 43 chapters, by a stellar group of authors, describe the great variety of mechanisms by which the rearrangements occur, how they are regulated, their biological consequences, and ways in which transposable elements can be exploited as potent research tools.
