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 gene transfer has broad implications for our understanding of microbial biology, not only in…

Applications for symposium conveners open for ICBB2014. In about one year (August 11-14, 2014) the International Conference on the Biology of Butterflies (ICBB2014) will take place in Turku, Finland. The conference will be organized into 12 symposia, of which four will be arranged by the organizing committee, under the broad themes “Population biology and conservation”, “Genomics and development”, “Ecology and evolution” and “Systematics and diversification”. These four symposia are planned to be very general and to inform all attendees of…
