gene [ENGLISH]

A segment of DNA found on a chromosome that codes for a particular protein. Humans have tens of thousands of genes that act as a blueprint for making specific enzymes or other proteins for virtually every biomedical reaction and structure in the body.


En bit av genomet. En gen kan vara en ritning för hur ett protein ska konstrueras, men det finns också gener som ger upphov till RNA som inte översätts till ett protein.
