Hi again Andrew,

Another thing that I always seem to forget about are the CHRLOC
packages.  And for some reason in my head I never think of these CHRLOC
packages as part of the set of things that are considered "annotation
packages" either (I guess because they are so specialized).  But in your
case you can just use the humanCHRLOC package, and that would get you
all kinds of information about the end points for these genes.
