Problem: What are the differences and the similarities between transposable elements that utilize an RNA intermediate and those that do not? Be sure to cover structural, functional, and behavioral differences.

FREE Expert Solution

The transposable elements that utilize an RNA intermediate and those do not have similarities such that: 

  • Both elements are jumping genes which can move from one location on the genome to another.  Both the elements are used for break/re-joining of DNA.
  • Both are able to cause mutation in the organism and can lead to the evolution of genome.
