Evolvability can be defined as the capacity of an individual to evolve and thus to capture adaptive mutations. Transposable elements (TE) are an important source of mutations in organisms. Their capacity to transpose within a genome, sometimes at a high rate, and their copy number regulation are environment-sensitive, as are the epigenetic pathways that mediate TE regulation in a genome. In this review we revisit the way we see evolvability with regard to transposable elements and epigenetics.
