The bovine genome assembly was explored to detect putative retrotransposon sequences. In total 87,310 such sites were detected. Four breeds of dairy cattle (Bos taurus) were examined with respect to the presence, segregation or complete absence of the putative retrotransposon. A total of 10,983 sites were polymorphic. Some were absent in one or more of the breeds, including 680 which were absent in the Jersey breed, but only 13 were completely absent in all dairy breeds. The fact that so many of the putative retrotransposons are polymorphic, suggests that retrotransposition has been happening at least until the very recent past.
