Microbiologists, biochemists, and related scientists discuss mobile elements that have colonized the genomes of some medically important metazoan parasites and their vectors, comparing and contrasting them with better-studied model organisms. The nine studies cover catalytic activity in transcripts from Schistosoma non-autonomous retro-transposons, mobile genetic elements of malaria vectors and other mosquitoes, retro-transposons in the genomes of the digenean parasitic trematodes Clonochis sinensis and Paragonimus westermani, endogenous retro-transposon sequences of the Schistosoma mansoni intermediate snail host Biomphalaria glabrata, the transposon-mediated transgenis of mosquitoes, Schistosome long terminal repeat retro-transposons colonizing Schistosome genomes, Schistosome DNA transposons, and mobile genetic elements resident in hookworm genomes.
