It is accepted that C value changes are caused by changes in the number of transposable elements, in intron sizes, polyploidy, and DNA loss (Gregory 2005).

Shapiro concludes that living organisms are connected by common descent, but that the evidence points to abrupt change as a result of horizontal transfer, movement of transposable elements, chromosome rearrangements, genome duplication, and cell fusion, all of which reassemble useful genomic elements in novel ways.
There are four other modes, transposable six times, and presenting less interest, for the very reason of their too great number of transpositions.

The complexity of the maize genome is also partly due to the fact that about 85 percent of its DNA is composed of transposable elements--segments of DNA that can move between locations.
Researchers from around the world working in the field and related disciplines discuss the roles of proteolysis in plant self- incompatibility, the epigenetic regulation of transposable elements in plants, proteins and interactions, expression quantitative trait loci analysis, plants' sensing and responding to excess light, phloem transport, cellulosic biofuels, jasmonate action, selaginella, the circadian system in higher plants, photorespiratory metabolism, environmental effects on the spatial and temporal patterns of leaf and root growth, genetically engineered plants and foods, and other topics.

Short interspersed transposable elements (SINEs) are excluded from imprinted regions in the human genome.
In other words, crucial aspects of the content may be transposable but the context as such is not entirely available to us, thus turning the translated text into a counterfeit when applied to different context.
Transposable elements, in particular, are known to have a substantial contribution to genome size, especially in grasses (Bennetzen, 2002).
