Does Cytosine methylation affect evolution of transposons, specifically GC-content?

Questions

  1. How does GC-content of transposons vary?
  2. Are there conserved regions of GC-content inter/intraspecies?

Known

  • Methylation occurs in promoter regions (TIR in MuDR) to silence

Methods

  1. Get promoter sequences from Damon.
