How many human genes have the scientists mapped? And there are a total of how many genes in a somatic cell? Are the information on the mapped genes all saved in computer databases? Is this what I hear as career in bioinformatics? Thanks for your answers to my questions.

EMBL and NCBI are two main sources...You can do a search and read the genbank file for more info.
