Hello, I want to get gene summary for all human genes by using The Entrez Programming Utilities (E-utilities) provided by NCBI. First of all I need to get the set of human genes name(seems gene don't have UID?), I think I can get that from GTF file. But I hope there is better way. Thanks!
Example of gene summary of gene APOE.

The protein encoded by this gene is a major apoprotein of the chylomicron. It binds to a specific liver and peripheral cell receptor, and is essential for the normal catabolism of triglyceride-rich lipoprotein constituents. This gene maps to chromosome 19 in a cluster with the related apolipoprotein C1 and C2 genes. Mutations in this gene result in familial dysbetalipoproteinemia, or type III hyperlipoproteinemia (HLP III), in which increased plasma cholesterol and triglycerides are the consequence of impaired clearance of chylomicron and VLDL remnants.

You can use Biomart to get all gene names. You may want to choose Limit to genes (external references)... With RefSeq mRNA ID(s) in the Filter tab.
