Agreed, maybe I misspoke but I wasn’t aware of any place I said it did.

“Junk DNA” is a well accepted term by the scientific community and public.

I think my main point was missed which is: “labeling something as non useful and leaving it out of the majority of DNA sequencing as a result has made large swathes of the scientific community unaware of how non coding DNA works within the DNA ecosystem”. I think it’s unfortunate that the community doesn’t label this as “exciting area of unknown science” which would encourage investigation.
