Too good to be true: a genome specific distribution of a transposable element in soybean species

We discovered a novel DNA transposon element called GftoMITE1 integrated into the CenH3 gene in Glycine falcata. Interestingly, GftoMITE1 shows genome-specific distribution in wild perennial soybean species, regardless of ploidy, but is absent in cultivated soybean and its progenitor.
