Does anyone have info on what rules might have been suggested for naming
of genes in different species?  If for example a gene has been named in
one species, should phylogenetically related genes in other species be
named after the original gene-name?  Or, is it the norm to name genes in
each species at the discretion of the people who clone it?  

Yes of course "a rose by any other name ..." but I thought might be good
to check whether a system of gene-naming exists.
