While once almost synonymous, there is an increasing gap between the expanding definition of what constitutes a gene and the conservative and narrowly defined terms code or coding, which for a long time, almost exclusively constituted the open reading frame. Much confusion results from this disparity, especially in light of the plethora of noncoding RNAs (more correctly termed “non‐protein‐coding RNAs”) that usually are encoded and transcribed by their own genes. A simple solution would be to… Expand
