The term “Junk DNA” is bullshit. There, I said it. The moment I hear someone utter that phrase, I immediately lose respect for him or her. No one whose opinion is worth anything will refer to non-coding DNA as junk. That’s why this article bothers me. The title, “Junk DNA may not be so junky after all” has nothing to do with the content of the article. The research being described is not about showing that non-coding DNA has a function. The function has already been determined. The researchers have used zebrafish to identify enhancers for human genes. The subtitle to the article (Researchers develop new tool to find gene control regions) actually describes the research pretty well. The actual title is a load of crap.
