I'm writing an article about naming genes. I'd like
to mention some interesting, clever, or just funny
examples. I'm not familiar with Arabidopsis, but
as far as I know it has some creative gene names,
as does Drosophila.
So, I'd like to ask you, what is your favourite
gene name? Please provide the explanation of the
PS. I already found one: Superman. Could you please
confirm if it is true that there is an allele of
it, which was originally thought to be another gene,
called Clark Kent?
