Is there an elegant way to find the chromosome, start and end position
to a given gene symbol via rtracklayer.
In the table browser on USCS website I can provide these information by
pasting a list of identifiers, so the requested information must be
somewhere in the tables.
My found solution is kind of indirect by first getting a table of all
UCSC names together with gene symbols, finding the corresponding UCSC
names to my symbols and then searching these UCSC names in a table of
all UCSC names with location.
Thank you in advance,
