what do u mean by genomic and non- genomic DNAs?

The genomic DNA refers to the complete DNA present in the cell i.e inside the mitochondria, nucleus and in chloroplast (in case of plant cells). This genomic DNA can further be classified as coding and non coding DNA. Coding DNA is one which codes for protein where as non coding DNA does not codes for any protein.

Non genomic DNA is nothing but rarely used term to denote non coding/ non functional DNA.

 genomic DNA is the nucleoid itself.

non-genomic DNA is the extra DNA present outside the nucleoid/ genomic cavity.
