Junk DNA: stretches of DNA that do not code for genes; most of the genome consists of so-called junk DNA which may have regulatory and other functions. Also called non-coding DNA.

Justice: it is the principle of rendering what is due to others. It is most complex of the ethical principles to be considered because it deals not only with the physician's obligation to render to a patient what is owed but also with the physician's role in allocation of limited medical resources in the community. The principle of justice applies at many levels.
