We are being asked to investigate this quest, how?

Have you looked at the last line to see if it looks like gene_name?

Isn't this isomorphic to genetics questions? What sort of mutation is  
it? Deletion? Abnormal stop codon? Figure out where the transcription  
process went wrong.  This sort of analysis would appear to be right up  
the alley of someone doing genetics.
