Glossary of "Evolution (4th ed.)" by Futuyma & Kirkpatrick (2017)
- The formation of new genes by assembly of exons from two or more preexisting genes. The classical model of exon shuffling generates new combinations of exons mediated via recombination of intervening introns; however, exon shuffling can also come about by retrotransposition of exons into pre-existing genes.
