Transposable Elements and RNA provides the latest on the main families of transposable elements, their relationship with viruses, and the regulation of their activity. When the TE world meets the RNA realm, there is a necessity to reduce TE and virus activity. The discovery of such regulations associated with the impact of epigenetic phenomena in evolution and gene regulation evolution allows us to obtain a better idea of transposable element dynamics and evolution.
