Mobile genetic elements are present in all organisms. They are a major cause of spontaneous genetic change and are now exploited as important tools for obtaining mutants, isolating genes, and for studying gene expression. A key role of mobile genetic elements is their self-proliferation; they are "selfish-DNA." Nevertheless, they often show a sophisticated symbiosis with the cells they inhabit, with their activities controlled and used to mediate specific biological processes. In this important study of this topic, two ...
