Hi Matteo and Vasu,

There are different ways to refer to genes. Names that start with NM_ are 
termed 'accession numbers,' and they are a valid way to refer to genes. 

Matteo, what you may want is the canonical gene name (e.g. Xkr4). If so, you'll 
want to use a gene annotation/reference file from UCSC; when you are getting 
the file, you'll want to select the table with the word 'canonical' in it. E.g. 
for hg19/UCSC genes, there is a table called knownCanonical that provides the 
canonical gene names.
