- In this issue, Ahl et al. (2015) and Doucet et al. (2015) illuminate structural and functional features of substrates that promote integration of RNA molecules into the human genome by LINE retrotransposons, contributing to the ∼50% of the human genome that has been colonized by mobile genetic elements.
