Transposable elements -- also known as transposons or "jumping genes" -- are genes that can move themselves or a copy of themselves from one chromosome to another. Because they can move to different chromosomes, they contribute to the creation of new genes. They are integral to some of the most important research in explaining how evolution adds information and complexity to a gene pool -- a question that the present theory of evolution does not have an adequate answer for.
