Its capital was Genoa, and it was divided in the arrondissements of Genoa, Bobbio, Novi Ligure, Tortona and Voghera. It was disbanded after the defeat of Napoleon in 1814. Its territory is presently divided over the Italian provinces Genoa, Piacenza, Alessandria and Pavia. The trousers called jeans in English are named for the bleu de Gênes, a blue dye used for denim.

  1. Genes

    Specific sequences of nucleotides along a molecule of DNA (or, in the case of some viruses, RNA) which represent functional units of HEREDITY. Most eukaryotic genes contain a set of coding regions (EXONS) that are spliced together in the transcript, after removal of intervening sequence (INTRONS) and are therefore labeled split genes.
