hello world,

I am currently writing up my thesis and madly thought it would be sensible to compare gene annotations for NCBI build 37/hg19.

This turned out to be a complete nightmare.

Whilst I easily found the number of VEGA protein coding genes, there seems to be no way of finding out how many RefSeq protein coding genes there are.

Even worse with UCSC - the UCSC genes release seems to neither have a date nor a build number, grrr. No idea how many genes there are...

Am I missing something here or are is this kind of information really not available?!?

Cheers :(
