They can occur randomly, in any region of the DNA, including within those regions of the gene that actually encode parts of the resulting protein (i.e., coding sequences), within "silent" regions of a gene that ultimately do not encode parts of the resulting protein (i.e., non-coding regions), or in the regions between genes (i.e., intergenic regions).
To test whether there is a significant difference in the sizes of the upstream intergenic region of the eumetazoan orthologs of homeobox and non-homeobox genes in the Amphimedon NK cluster, we analyzed publicly available gene models for the cnidarian Nematostella vectensis and representative bilaterians: the lophotrochozoan Lottia gigantea, the ecdyzosoans Caenorhabditis elegans and Drosophila melanogaster, and the deuterostomes Branchiostoma floridae and Ciona intestinalis (Fig.
Next, an oligonucleotide specific for the 3' end of bphA was added and PCR was used to amplify the intergenic region of the cDNA.

The detected differences included 4 nucleotide transitions, 5 nucleotide transversions, 5 changes in homopolymer regions, and 1 integration of a repeat into a previously described variable intergenic region (10) (Table).

The lncRNAs at the intergenic region (Figure 1(d)), which are distant from other genes, could be easily removed by genome editing technology in a similar manner with protein-coding genes.
Previous studies demonstrated that both monopartite and bipartite begomoviruses have regions termed as large intergenic regions (LIR) and common regions, which contain DNA sequences essential for gene regulation (Hanley-Bowdoin et al., 1999).Transcription of the genomes of geminiviruses is bidirectional, initiating in the intergenic region.
Previous human genetic studies have linked genetic polymorphisms in two regions of the GABRA2 gene (i.e., in the middle and at the 3 end of the gene) and in the region between the GABRA2 and GABRG1 genes (i.e., the GABRA2 to GABRG1 intergenic region) with AD (Agrawal et al.
