I would like to highlight rows 4-6 and 21 with a nice pale red color. Would that be possible? Thank you!

Load the package \usepackage[table]{xcolor} and then add \rowcolor{red!50} (or decrease the number for making it paler) before the row you want to colour.

A little note on this (suggested by Amar): The \rowcolor{} command is from the colortbl package (as David Carlisle mentioned in his comment). It is not from the xcolor package, which offers its own \rowcolors or rowcolors* commands. To use them one must load the xcolor package with the optional argument table. When loaded this way, the optional table argument calls for the colortbl package to be loaded as well and that is why the command works.

Anyway, here's an example:

\rowcolor{red!50}
4 & BTNL3 & butyrophilin-like 3 & 5q35.3 & 5 & 180348506 & 180366333 & 0.15359 \\

This will create little white lines where the rules should be. As far as I know there is no (easy) way to remove this.

Also you can render a document in landscape by adding it to the geometry package options.

You have to load the \usepackage[usenames,dvipsnames,table]{xcolor} package and then define a custom colour, say - \definecolor{indianred1}{RGB}{255,106,106} and use the \rowcolors*[<commands>]{<row>}{<odd-row color>}{<even-row color>} command from the xcolor package, along with \showrowcolors and \hiderowcolors to select and deselect rows that are with and without colour.

Note: See xcolor (v2.11 2007/01/21) documentation, page 28 for more information.

MWE:

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[usenames,dvipsnames,table]{xcolor}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\definecolor{indianred1}{RGB}{255,106,106} % New colour definition for printing pale red colour!

\begin{document}
