DAG for GO:0016458id: GO:0016458

name: gene silencing
namespace: biological_process
def: "Any process carried out at the cellular level that results in either long-term transcriptional repression via action on chromatin structure or RNA mediated, post-transcriptional repression of gene expression." [GOC:dos, GOC:dph, GOC:jid, GOC:tb]
comment: This is a rather broad grouping term. While it was originally defined for long-term, heritable, epigenetic effects, short term effects on expression mediated by RNA are also frequently referred to as gene silencing, and are grouped under this class.
