The most popular genes in the human genome

Correction of a pathogenic gene mutation in human embryos

"In 2002, the US National Library of Medicine (NLM) began annotating papers in its popular PubMed database of biomedical literature. Articles are tagged if they contain information about the structure, function or location of a specic gene or gene product. The effort has recorded 1.2 million descriptions of 27,000 human genes — including RNA genes and pseudogenes — in about 565,000 articles. These data reveal trends in genetics research, as well as the list of most studied human genes."
