It is to be noted that although the terms 'genetic sequence', 'nucleotide sequence', 'genome sequence' and any other term involving or referring to DNA are retained in this discussion to match the usage in contemporary scientific literature, they should be taken to imply a chromosomal region or a chromosomal sector, but not specifically the DNA structure that stores a program bit.
