Comments "This table compares two data sources: One source is the set of genes assigned to the reference chromosome sequences (release 36.2 of the human genome sequence), and the second source is the human RefSeq collection that was available at the same time. When efforts are made to join these data sets, a number of discrepancies remain." For values of 19,042 and ~20,500 See BNID 105447, 100399 respectively, and comments section therein
