Satellite Meeting on Reticulated Microbial Evolution

Posted by on Dec 19, 2013 in Featured, Meetings | 0 comments

Lateral gene transfer (LGT) is the process by which prokaryotes acquire DNA across wide taxonomic boundaries and incorporate it into their genome. Accumulating evidence shows that LGT, a distinctly non tree-like evolutionary process, plays a major role in prokaryote evolution. Virtually all prokaryotic gene families have been affected by LGT and only few gene families are resistant to it. The biological and evolutionary significance of lateral...
