Indexing to the ends of genes seems like an error --it makes for
in the interpretation of CHRLOC.
I went ahead and downloaded UCSC tables and fixed the error in my local
What I did was: download various UCSC tables, look for - strand genes,
opposite (largest available) index (start of transcription index) as the
CHRLOC for the
- strand genes.
Hope this helps.
