Junk DNA or Transposable elements is no more selfish. TE’s have potential to enhance their ability in their own evolution. The relationships between TEs and host genomes are highly variable. TE’s have the capacity to move, amplify and accumulate in invaded genomes and thus represent the major force in restructuring host genes and genomes during evolution.
TE’s could influence genetic ploymorphispm and therefore genetic diversity was for the most part ignored. These unconventional DNA insertions actually moved with significant frequency and so they were considered that they could not contribute to genetic diversity. This was due to the same TE insertion in the particular mutant.’
