Satellite DNA in gene regulation and environmental adaptation (SatGenReg)

Glavni istraživač / voditelj: Đurđica Ugarković

Repetitive elements can be a source of regulatory sequences and could act to distribute regulatory elements throughout the genome. In particular, mobile transposable elements are known to be a source of noncoding material that influences evolution of gene regulatory networks.
