Pseudogenes in the human genome annotation

Pseudogenes in the human genome annotation


Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone if familiar of any annotation term in the human genes annotation e.g. from gencode or ensembl to be able to extract pseudogenes and separate them from non-pseudogenes.

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance,

human genome






You can also use the Table Browser ( to extract the pseudogenes from our default gene track.

First make the following selections (for hg38):

Table Browser selection

And then select the filter button, and type pseudogene for transcriptClass:

filter for pseudogene

The output for the whole genome will be 18,578 annotations, from the GENCODE V36 models.

If you have any follow up questions, our public help desk can always be reached at You may also send questions to if they contain sensitive data. For any Genome Browser questions on Biostars, the UCSC tag is the best way to ensure visibility by the team.
