Annotation of regulatory sequences is largely insufficient

Of a proven set of regulatory regions in zebrafish, computer programs find only between 29% and 61% of the true motifs. This does not come very much unexpected given the vast array of data shown by the Encode project. It even relates to the most basic question: What is a gene?

The more expert scientists become in molecular genetics, the less easy it is to be sure about what, if anything, a gene actually is.

iwith at least 5772 21U-RNAs? So – if I am sitting on the other side of the table when you are being examined don’t talk about junk DNA anymore, yea, yea.
