It is not clear as to what you are trying to do.

A set of genes was predicted in early 2000's based on the first assembly of human genome but that number has been shrinking over the years (see: http://www.the-scientist.com/?articl...Shrinks-Again/).

Current human genome contains fairly well organized chromosome sequences which you can download from this link (in fasta format):ftp://ftp.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/genomes/a...genomic.fna.gz

I am not sure where you see 169156 contigs? Earliest dataset I can see on UCSC is from May 2010: http://hgdownload.soe.ucsc.edu/golde...y2000/bigZips/
