Which genes do not code for proteins?
Those would be the non-coding RNAs. These are genes that are transcribed into RNA, but it will stay as RNA and wont make proteins. Examples: transfer RNA (tRNA), ribosomal RNA (riRNA), small RNAs (snoRNAs), siRNAs (silencing RNAs), etc. They have functions, but as RNA, not as proteins. Hope it helps!
Separate names with a comma.
