We also address several questions on TE expression: what kinds of stresses induce TE expression? Do such stresses induce all kinds of TEs? Is TE transcription followed by translation and a transposition process or are TEs silenced?
Another part of our work consists in testing TEs as molecular tools for mutagenesis or transgenesis. New TEs isolated from marine microalgae will be tested as DNA vectors to durably modify the nuclear genome of some microalgae.
