Mosquito genomes are frequently invaded by transposable elements through horizontal transferE. S. de Melo and G. L. Wallau, PLOS Genetics, 16:e1008946. 2020.
We characterized the whole TE content of 24 mosquito genomes and investigated the TE inheritance mode uncovering hundreds of horizontal transfer events among these species and distantly related ones. We also identify a mosquito parasitic filarial worm, th
