I can't resist mentioning a couple of pet peeves of my own:
A gene "codes for" or "encodes" but doesn't do both at the same time
(unless it encodes more than one polypeptide, but let's not get too picky!)

rDNA originally referred to ribosomal DNA and, I think, still should.  What
should the acronym for recombinant DNA be?
