CSHL researchers map changing epigenetic modifications that enable transposons to run amok

Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y. Much like cancer cells, plant cells grown for a long time outside of their normal milieu, in culture dishes, have highly unstable genomes. Changes in gene activity, or how genes are "expressed," help cells cope with challenging culture conditions but inadvertently also le...
