> Hi guys, I have a RNASeq data table which has exon cooridinates (chrom, start. end) and raw count. I want to use DEXseq to see differential transcripts. To do it I need to get geneIDs and exonIDs from corresponding exon cooridinates. Any suggestion how to do it? Thanks a lot for the help!

You don't give much to go on. Assuming you are working with a common 
species, it is simple. Let's assume you are working with mice.

Something like this should work:

yourdata <- read.table("yourdata.txt", stringsAsFactors=FALSE)
ex <- exons(TxDb.Mmusculus.UCSC.mm9.knownGene, columns = 
yourdata <- GRanges(yourdata$chrom, IRanges(start=yourdata$start, 
elementMetadata(yourdata) <- elementMetadata(ex)[match(yourdata, ex),]

If you are planning on doing this sort of stuff, do yourself a favor and 
read the GenomicFeatures and GenomicRanges vignettes. They are chock 
full of info that you will need.
