The DNA transposon Minos as a tool for transgenesis and functional genomic analysis in vertebrates and invertebrates.

The DNA transposon Minos as a tool for transgenesis and functional genomic analysis in vertebrates and invertebrates.

Transposons are highly effective instruments for conducting genetic manipulation and functional research in organisms which are of scientific, financial, or medical curiosity. Minos, a member of the Tc1/mariner household of DNA transposons, displays a low insertional bias and transposes with excessive frequency in vertebrates and invertebrates. Its use as a tool for transgenesis and genome …
