English term or phrase: nomadic DNA
"Jumped gene: Nomadic DNA in a neuron gives rise to a protein that glows green after moving to a new spot in the cell nucleus.

Ίσως να χρειάζεται περισσότερη έρευνα από μέρους μου για τον συγκεκριμένο όρο, αλλά δεν έχω αρκετό χρόνο στην διάθεσή μου. Η απλή μετάφραση "νομαδικό DNA" δεν μου δίνει σχεδόν καθόλου αποτελέσματα...

Έχω καταλήξει στα ακόλουθα:

- μεταθετό DNA
- νομαδικό DNA

Τί νομίζετε;

νομαδικό DNA


Explanation:
Ένας άλλος τρόπος να πει "περιπλανώμενο" και να περιγράψει το μεταθετό γονίδιο. Κράτησε την απόλυτη αντιστοιχία.

These are the so-called 'jumping genes' or nomadic elements which can excise from a particular location in the genome and reinsert elsewhere.
