Horizontal transfer is the movement of genetic material between reproductively isolated species. Although horizontal transfer of plant mitochondrial genes is well documented, movement of plant nuclear genes has never been observed. The first such case, involving the movement of a transposable element between millet and rice, is presented in Diao et al.
