Contents: Transposons can be viewed as natural DNA transfer vehicles -- Transposons are capable of efficient genomic insertion, similar to integrating viruses -- Transposition can be controlled by conditionally providing the transposase enzyme -- DNA of interest cloned into a transposon-based vector can be utilized for stable genomic insertion in a regulated and highly efficient manner -- Transposition opens up many avenues for genome manipulations in vertebrates -- Generation of transgenic cells and germline-transgenic animals using transposons -- The Sleeping Beauty synthetic transposon -- Clinical applications of the Sleeping Beauty system.
