Associate Professor Max Alekseyev and CBI GRA Pavel Avdeev co-published "Implicit transpositions in DCJ scenarios" in Frontiers in Genetics on November 29th, 2017. The article addresses the implicit appearance of transpositions in DCJ scenarios. The authors derive a uniform lower bound for the rate of implicit transpositions, which depends only on the genomes but not a particular DCJ scenario between them. Their results imply that implicit appearance of transpositions in DCJ scenarios may be unavoidable or even abundant for some pairs of genomes.
