My paper in graduate school that got the most attention was about Space Invaders. How do Space Invaders go along with Quantitative Biology, Genomics, and DNA in general? Here are a couple of links to explain.
The first is a review that was done by Ed Yong (@edyong209) at National Geographic.
Space Invader DNA jumped across mammalian genomes
The second is the link to the actual paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS.)
Repeated horizontal transfer of a DNA transposon in mammals and other tetrapods, published in Proceeding of the National Academy of Science, October 2008.
