Dear Subhash,

You can get this information using the Table Browser download tool at
the UC Santa Cruz Genome Informatics Web site. It will allow you to
download a data file that gives the genomic coordinates for
mRNA-to-genome alignments. To start, I would recommend you use a
RefSeq data set, since these tend to be full-length sequences and many
have been vetted by expert curators.

To figure out which mRNA accessions go with which genes, you can use
gene2accession, a data file available from the Entrez Gene ftp site.

Of course there may be more direct approaches which other participants
on this list may suggest.

Best of luck,

Ann Loraine
