Human gene number increases

...enes are genuine, an estimate of 42,000 or more is closer to the mark. According to the researchers, gene-prediction algorithms are at fault, rather than the underlying sequence itself. Cooke says that computational methods, which look for similarities to known gene sequences, are difficult to get right. T...
