Variation in the estimates of the number of genes encoded by the human genome (28,000-120,000) attests to the difficulty of systematically identifying human genes. Sequencing of human chromosome 22 (Chr22) provided the first comprehensive, unbiased view of an entire human chromosome, and intensive analysis of this sequence identified 545 genes and 134 pseudogenes that had similarity or identity to known proteins and/or ESTs and which were listed in the gene annotation (http://www.sanger.ac.uk… CONTINUE READING
