Dna Book

a: Exon ~
b: a chapter in the book

What: "If you consider a gene to be like a book, then an exon is like a chapter in the book. It is a discrete segment of the gene. When the text of an exon is altered by a mutation, it changes the meaning of the chapter and hence that of the whole book"
