I am not sure if this question is appropriate for Biostars. But, since the data is associated with gene curation, it might.
I am looking at several "PIN" genes in Arabidopsis; but for these two genes "PIN5 and PIN8", they are listed as synonymous to each other, but physically they are located in two different positions of the genome but are very close to each other.
Is this a curation problem? Or, is it something else.
