Rotifers of unusual (genome) size: rotifer genomes are many things, none of them logical


I gave this talk at the 3rd annual Uppsala Transposon Symposium, covering most of my PhD work on B. plicatilis genome size variation. This covered the genomic causes of interspecific genome size variation (mostly transposons), genomic causes of intraspecific genome size variation (annotating B chromosomes), and some analyses of meiotic behaviour of B chromosomes.
