My textbook says:"Protein encoding genes control protein production indirectly, using a related molecule called RNA as an intermediary. The sequences of nucleotides along a gene is transcribed into mRNA, which is then translated into a linked series of protein building blocks called amino acids."My question is, do only protein encoding genes control protein production indirectly through RNA or do all genes do this?
