Evolutionary History of RepeatsЛекция
Mobile elements constitute large portions of eukaryotic genomes. They are sequences that are often replicated, and replicated copies then undergo evolution separately; thus, by considering a family of mobile (repeat) elements one can deduce evolutionary history, leading to important insights on species relations, population structure etc. We consider probabilistic modeling of mobile elements phylogeny, starting from the simplest statistical considerations and then proceeding to more complicated models.
