Hi All,

There are 52446 annotated genes (ENSMUSG IDs) and 142,699 transcripts (ENSMUST IDs) in Mus_musculus.GRCm38.100.gtf. It makes sense that there are WAY more transcripts than genes. My question, however, is – why are there more genes than transcripts for lincRNA in the genome? Specifically there are 9847 genes and 8357 transcripts.

A gene contains one or more transcripts, for lincRNAs, there each lincRNA there is a gene record, and many have only 1 associated transcript
