Non-coding DNA are sequences of DNA that do not code for genes. Non-coding DNA is also known as introns which are removed through the process of splicing mRNA using a spliceosome, the resulting mRNA strand exclusively contains exons which are translated. While the functions of many such regions are not yet known, the functions of certain sequences, such as the telomere[1], have been discovered[2].
