plasmon

(plăz′mŏn′)
n.
1. The aggregate of cytoplasmic or extranuclear genetic material in an organism.

plasmon

An antiquated term for the sum of intracellular DNA exclusive of nuclear DNA, and according to some, also exclusive of mitochondrial DNA; individual fragments of DNA had been termed plastogenes.
