Inserted Elements

Both nuclear and mitochondrial genomes in fungi may contain a wide range of inserted elements [e.g., see Edelmann and Staben (1994); chapters 11 and 12]. At the very simplest these may be very short sequences left after transposon insertion and removal, and at the more complex they include a wide range of different transposons [see Daboussi (1997); Daboussi and Langin (1994)]. Inserted elements, particularly introns, have been investigated as potential molecular markers at both the population level and the higher phylogenetic level (DePriest 1993; Neuveglise et al. 1997).
