NCGR Hosts Symposium on Genome Dynamics

Published: Mar 08, 2013

The National Center for Genome Resources (NCGR) announced today that it will host the ninth annual New Mexico Bioinformatics, Science and Technology (NMBIST) symposium on March 21-22, 2013 on “Genome Dynamics.” Genome dynamics has been the focus of much recent research even though for some time we have known that genomes are not static. Barbara McClintock's work, beginning in the 1920s, described recombination during meiosis and transposable elements as genes that jumped spontaneously from one site to another, interrupting gene function and genome structures.
