comment "Definition: A continuant that encodes information that can be inherited through replication.
Rationale: Gene is an abstract continuant that can be best described as a "schema", a common conception commonly used by biologists to demark a component within genome. In BioPAX, Gene is considered a generalization over eukaryotic and prokaryotic genes and is used only in genetic interactions. Gene is often confused with DNA and RNA fragments, however, these are considered the physical encoding of a gene. N.B. Gene expression regulation makes use of DNA and RNA physical entities and not this class.
Usage: Gene should only be used for describing GeneticInteractions." (string)
