I originally thought that cloning a gene meant to put it into bacteria and have them express it. But sometimes I see it used and it seems like it's just a synonym for "identify the sequence and/or location of". So what does "clone a gene" really mean"

"Cloning a gene" also just means making tons of copies of it, like in PCR, so you can sequence it
