The community of scientists working on transposable elements, endogenous viruses, and other repetitive elements is scattered all across Uppsala. In July 2017, we therefore established the Uppsala Transposon Club as an email list to connect local scientists across departments and universities. Contact Alexander Suh if you would like to join the club!
Approximately once a month there is TE Tuesday, an informal journal club/pub loosely inspired by the Ross-Ibarra lab's R.E.H.A.B.. We meet to discuss a selected topic, for which a selected paper is provided as a discussion primer. The main focus is to discuss different viewpoints (and similarities) in the context of the various organisms we work on.
Here is what we have been up to so far, or soon will be up to. The format is either a pub setting or B.Y.O.B. (bring your own beverage).

The approximately monthly TE Digest is an attempt to keep up with the dozens of papers published each month on research on transposons, viruses, or other repetitive elements. The current format is an alphabetically sorted list of paper titles with links.
