Congrats to the Hancock lab graduates Karah Moulton, Mitchell Rich, Grant Stevens, and Reese King. They were supposed to walk today.

They all had an impact on the lab. I appreciate their hard work and will miss them.

Tracking the origin of two genetic components associated with transposable element bursts in domesticated rice

Congrats to Jazmine and Stephanie on their recent Nature Communications publication. Thanks to the Wessler lab for the collaboration.
https://rdcu.be/blEoX

Transposable element (TE) bursts shape genome evolution but their origin remains unclear. Here, the authors show that a burst is restricted to only a few domesticated rice accessions and is associated with the acquisition of two TE variants, Ping16A and Ping16A_Stow, not the loss of TE silencing.

Targeted Insertion of the mPing Transposable Element

Congrats to Ashley, Mary and Stephanie for their publication in the SCAS Journal! Great job!
https://scholarcommons.sc.edu/jscas/vol16/iss1/12/

Class II DNA Transposable Elements (TEs) are moved from one location to another in the genome by the action of transposase proteins that bind to repeat sequences at the ends of the elements. Although the location TE insertion is mostly random, the addition of DNA binding domains to the transposase p...

After 6 years of hard work, I was officially awarded tenure and promotion to Associate Professor. Thanks to all the students and colleagues that helped me along the way. I could not have done it without your help. Looking forward to the next 6 years!
