In the context of the developments in Bioinformatics, the term transcriptome', sometimes seen in the news, refers to
(a) a range of enzymes used in genome editing
(b) the full range of mRNA molecules expressed by an organism
(c) the description of the mechanism of gene expression
(d) a mechanism of genetic mutations taking place in cell

In the context of Bioinformatics, the term "transcriptome" refers to the complete set of messenger RNA (mRNA) molecules that are transcribed from the DNA of an organism's genome. The transcriptome represents all the RNA molecules that are actively being expressed in a particular cell, tissue, or organism at a given time. It provides valuable insights into gene expression patterns, alternative splicing events, and the overall functioning of the genome.
