This release contains 950 genes and 99 pseudogenes described in release 45
of the EMBL nucleotide sequence database. We have
assigned the genes transcribed by RNA polymerase II to two groups
on the basis of expression. The first group (widespread) consists
of housekeeping genes and genes expressed in a wide range of
tissues, and the second group (limited) consists of genes with
limited or tissue-specific expression.
