It is said that 90% of geneticists study the protein coding fraction of the genome while 10% study the less-well-understood "dark DNA".  Using a synthetic approach, I study Helitrons - a type of transposon in the non-coding region of the genome which is known to capture other, coding, genes.  This work will shed light into behavior of transposable elements and the interactions of coding and non-coding regions of the DNA.
