The various components of the total genome such as viruses, transposable elements, non-coding RNAs, and cells (with their constituent endosymbionts and epigenetically guided differentiation) as well as symbionts (with their epigenetic sculpting and pruning along and across their genealogy) are interactively charged with responding in an organized, reciprocating manner to environmental changes including behavioral adjustments.
