A genome is all genetic data of a single cell. That includes the genes in the nucleus, but also that of mitochondrial DNA.

A gene is a section of the genome which codes for one protein. It consists of various codons.

Every single codon codes for one amino acid (Many amino-acids put together form a protein). Every codon consists of three adjacent nucleotides.

What does the word gene mean?

A gene is a functional unit on DNA. A gene codes for a protein. Most of the DNA in a genome does not code for protein. These non-coding sequences are thought to provide a sense of stability and integrity to the genome. If a DNA sequence is capable of coding for a functional protein, then it is a gene
