Updated estimate of matches to humans?

Based on protein coding sequences from GenBank (10174 human genes)
and Wormbase (19073 C.elegans genes) as of 28-November-2000,
the euGenes service calculated 21% of worm genes match the human set,
and 40% of human genes match the worm set.  This is based on
sequences in this BLAST database matching with probability <= 1e-30

Find this at http://iubio.bio.indiana.edu/eugenes/all/hgsummary.html
along with fruitfly, mouse, yeast, weed and zebrafish comparisons.
