exome

exome

(ĕk′sōm′)
n.
The complete set of protein-coding sequences (exons) of a genome.

exome

The sum total of the exons in a genome, which comprise about 1% of human DNA. The exome is regarded as the most functionally relevant DNA, as it encodes proteins and gene products.

exome

(ek′sōm″) [ ex(on) + -ome]
All of the exons in the DNA of an organism. It is all of the DNA sequences that are transcribed into proteins, not including introns.
