This chapter views the genome as a metastable developmental system and argues that genomes should be considered as conceptually prior to genes rather than the other way around. It also argues that the dynamic view of the genome as a developmental system can shed light on the concept of genomic information and the notion of responses to stress.

Keywords:   genome, developmental system, genes, genomic information, stress
