Accumulation of transposable elements in Hox gene clusters during adaptive radiation of Anolis lizards

Abstract:

Transposable elements (TEs) are DNA sequences that can insert elsewhere in the genome and modify genome structure and gene regulation. The role of transposable elements in evolution is contentious. One hypothesis posits that TE activity generates genomic incompatibilities that can cause reproductive isolation between incipient species. This predicts that TEs will accumulate during speciation events. Here I tested the prediction that extant lineages with a relatively high rate of speciation ha...
