I have been working with different datasets for a month now but I get easily confused.
I need a dataset for genes in humans and I tried downloading it via ftp of different databases.
Ok, I understand there could be different exon, and splicing can result in different transcripts. But then it does have same start (bp) and end(bp). Shouldn't it be different among all the transcripts or I am missing something there?
I downloaded a dataset and a subset looks like this
Ensembl Gene ID Ensembl Transcript ID Chromosome Name Gene Start (bp) Gene End (bp) Strand Associated Gene Name Associated Transcript Name Status (gene) ENSG00000016402 ENST00000316649 6 137321108 137366298 -1 IL20RA IL20RA-001 KNOWN ENSG00000016402 ENST00000468393 6 137321108 137366298 -1 IL20RA IL20RA-002 KNOWN ENSG00000016402 ENST00000367746 6 137321108 137366298 -1 IL20RA IL20RA-003 KNOWN ENSG00000016402 ENST00000461799 6 137321108 137366298 -1 IL20RA IL20RA-005 KNOWN ENSG00000016402 ENST00000460306 6 137321108 137366298 -1 IL20RA IL20RA-004 KNOWN ENSG00000016402 ENST00000541547 6 137321108 137366298 -1 IL20RA IL20RA-202 KNOWN
In this example, chr_start and chr_end are same for all transcripts.
