The sense of smell in bacteria has been linked from the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction by feedback loops that biophysically constrain viral latency in the context of the space-time continuum.
See for comparison: Sensory Experience Shapes a Growing Brain
Sensory experience sculpts neural connectivity via cellular and molecular mechanisms that are still largely unknown.
The mechanisms are energy-dependent and microRNA-mediated. They link the sense of smell in bacteria to human brain development. Who hasn’t learned that?
I smell a rat. The Scientist published this on-line recently Can Viruses in the Genome Cause Disease? It appeared in print as:
The stress-linked resurrection of human endogenous retroviruses (HERVs) has been linked from differences in sensory-based experiences to differences in all pathology. A recent addition linked herpes viruses to Alzheimer’s.

For comparison, light-activated microRNA biogenesis links the creation of anti-entropic virucidal light to healthy longevity via the physiology of reproduction and energy-dependent fixation of alternative splicings of RNA.

Greg Bear, a science fiction author, may be the only person on Earth to have presciently linked light-activated microRNA biogenesis to protection from viruses in the context of this report:
Light Regulates Plant Alternative Splicing through the Control of Transcriptional Elongation 1/17/19
Light makes carbon fixation possible, allowing plant and animal life on Earth. We have previously shown that light regulates alternative splicing in plants. Light initiates a chloroplast retrograde signaling that regulates nuclear alternative splicing of a subset of Arabidopsis thaliana transcripts. Here, we show that light promotes RNA polymerase II (Pol II) elongation in the affected genes, whereas in darkness, elongation is lower. These changes in transcription are consistent with elongation causing the observed changes in alternative splicing, as revealed by different drug treatments and genetic evidence. The light control of splicing and elongation is abolished in an Arabidopsis mutant defective in the transcription factor IIS (TFIIS). We report that the chloroplast control of nuclear alternative splicing in plants responds to the kinetic coupling mechanism found in mammalian cells, providing unique evidence that coupling is important for a whole organism to respond to environmental cues.
The food energy-dependent pheromone-controlled creation of non-coding DNA (i.e., microRNAs) has been linked to the Structural diversity of supercoiled DNA by every serious scientist in the world.
