Genomic distancing in yeast: get out of my DNA !

Social distancing does not apply only to human societies in times of pandemics. The genome of all organisms is a crowded environment in which many machineries concur to read, copy and repair the encoded information. These machineries are susceptible to encounter each other and some of these collisions…
