I am looking for a term that describes DNA regions that overlap genes, i.e., non-intergenic DNA regions.
For example, say I am writing a paper about DNA-binding sites (i.e., DNA sequences that proteins bind to), but my paper focuses exclusively on DNA-binding sites that happen to overlap genes. What would my title be? "Non-intergenic DNA-binding sites are [...]" is one option, but I wonder whether a more appropriate term exists.
If I understand correctly, "Gene-overlapping" seems to be used for referring to genes that overlap other genes (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overlapping_gene).
Also, Google says that "genic" means "relating to genes".
Is any of my ideas appropriate? Or maybe another term?
To clarify what I mean by intergenic and non-intergenic, here is the figure from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intergenic_region. I added an example for a non-intergenic DNA region.
Explicitly, an intergenic DNA region is a DNA region that doesn't share any base with any gene. A non-intergenic DNA region is a DNA region that shares at least one base with a gene.
