The interconnection of mutagenic and cellular processes during the evolution of mammals
Research report (imported) 2008 - Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics
The huge amount of DNA sequence data derived from a multitude of species, which is at our disposal today, allows comparative studies of genome evolution. Such studies afford to trace back the evolution of genomic DNA sequences and to single out and study the processes that play an important role in changing and shaping the genomes of mammals. The interaction of these processes with other cellular operations is now being investigated and better understood.
