Metabolites Genes?

I've noticed that there are often biomolecules such as oligosaccharides, or amino acids that aren't genes or protein products of genes, but often occupy the same space linguistically in these articles.  Since there is no 'biomolecule' category, should these be categorized under the gene concept?

Hi there,

Great question!  You're absolutely right that the biomolecules you mentioned aren't genes or gene products, but are extremely relevant in these articles.  Eventually we'd love to be able to give users a toolbox and empower them to mark these other biomolecules, but for now please do not mark these as something they are not, and leave them unmarked.

best wishes,

ginger
