Same_as:http://www.biopax.org/release/biopax-level3.owl#Gene Definition: A continuant that encodes information that can be inherited through replication. Rationale: Gene is and abstract continuant that can be best described as a "schema". Gene in BioPAX is a generelization over eukaryotic and prokaryotic genes and used only for genetic interactions. Gene is often confused with DNA and RNA fragments that are physical encoding of the gene. Gene expression regulation makes use of DNA and RNA physical entities. Usage: Gene should only be used for describing GeneticInteractions.
