Dear All,

I noticed that a few genes (ex MAL7P1.61) in the ensembl protists *Plasmodium
falciparum *genome are classified as "protein coding", however they are
without a "protein product" and the CDS information states "non translating

Since I am working with multiple protist genomes I am curious to know

- If such class of genes are a regular feature in multiple genomes
- If no protein product is assigned then the term protein coding appears
misleading in this case.
