Quoting @hippietrail

Would anyone like to add junk-dna and/or noncoding-dna (or should that be non-coding-dna tags? I barely have enough rep here to breathe (-:

I would like to have a tag of this sort but I would propose noncoding-RNA since that is probably the more commonly used term. I can't think of any academic who uses "junk-DNA" in their normal nomenclature outside of a press release.

    $\begingroup$ Not to worry because Stack Exchange has a concept of "tag synonyms" so when somebody types in "junk-dna" as a tag they will instead get "non-coding-dna" - perfect! (-: (Sooner or later some non biologist will create the tag here anyway.) $\endgroup$ Sep 7, 2012 at 18:44
  • $\begingroup$ I completely agree that we should have a non-coding RNA tag. This would this encompass everything from micro RNAs to long non-coding RNAs. $\endgroup$
