"There have been successive waves of retrotransposon activity in primate evolution, when a transposable element changed to become expressed and replicated itself throughout the genome until something turned it off," Salama said.

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.

Geneticists and biologists from Europe, the US, and Brazil describe the repetitive content of eukaryotic genomes and the impact on genome structure, function, and evolution; the birth-and-death model as the mechanism guiding long-term evolution of multigene families; centromeres; telomere metabolism and its dynamics, with an emphasis on human biology; Drosophilia telomeres; satellite-DNA mediated effects on genome regulation; the evolutionary dynamics of transposable elements in eukaryotic genomes; short interspersed elements (SINEs) in genome evolution; unstable microsatellite repeats in the rapid evolution of coding and regulatory sequences; and chromosomal distribution and evolution of repetitive DNA in fish.
