What information do you need from these files, specifically?  And what is
your definition of a gene?  If you want to stick to Refseq genes, you can

But, the question is really, what EXACT information do you need and what is
the question that you want to answer?  It is only by deciding what you need
that you will know what files will suit (or not suit) your needs (and this

If you are going to be using NCBI resources (like the link above), I highly
suggest looking at the NCBI handbook here before proceeding too far:
