The genome of cultivated sweetpotato contains functional Agrobacterium T-DNAs: an example of a naturally transgenic food crop

Sexual or vertical gene transfer happens between members of the same species, and thus the genes are closely related and have the same evolutionary history.

Horizontal or lateral gene transfer is when a gene gets transferred from one species to another with which they are not normally sexually compatible.

One can detect such occurrences when a gene in a species is clearly different or related to other organisms as compared to all other genes from that same or related species.
