ABSTRACT: There are up to 25000 genes encoded by our genome however among them only some are being expressed on mass level. Some of these important genes are; ABO genes located at chromosome number 9, ALB genes located at chromosome number 4, BCL-2 genes located at chromosome number 18, CCR-5 genes located at chromosome number 3, CD4 genes located at chromosome number 12, CD8 genes located at chromosome number 2, IL10 genes located at chromosome number 1, IL2 genes located at chromosome number 4 and INS genes located at chromosome number 11. These above mentioned genes are important in the proper functioning of the body and any mutation in them could lead to different genetic disorders. INTRODUCTION: The total number of genes encoded by the human genome has been controversial 1-2 . Initially the number was thought to be over 150,000 however human genome project in 2003 reduced this number to the range of 20000 to 25000 1-4 .
