I have a list of Ensembl Gene IDs, how can I convert them to Gene Symbols?

Eg: ENSG00000210049 ENSG00000211459 ENSG00000210077 ENSG00000210082 ENSG00000209082 ENSG00000198888 ENSG00000210100 ENSG00000210107 ENSG00000210112

Though you find many answers in this forum (also from google), here is a hint. Search google for Biological database network and go to the first link and explore. But next time, please show us what you have tried which is not working as you expected.

Has the question been edited? This comment doesn't seem to match.

If you follow the instructions, it takes you to a gene/id mapping tool at bioDBnet. So it does answer the question in a particularly obtuse way. Also the real answer is BioMart ;)

I commented on the "biological database network" comment, which seems completely unrelated.

@Emily_Ensembl - I don't think it is unrelated. On the homepage of bioDBnet we can find db2db handles all the conversions from one database identifier to another

The actual answer given by Natasha is relevant, but asking someone to Google a phrase which appears completely unrelated, and is not obviously a tool name, seems fairly obtuse. The decent answer is to suggest someone a suitable tool, with a link, and why it might be useful to them.

Apologies if it is misleading. I thought it is the similar way of saying 'you can use BioMart' or something instead of giving direct answer.

The answer to most questions is bedtools or biomart :o

See this post C: GC content calculation

and Biomart URL Devon gave. In the upper right small window I've chosen 'Search ENSEMBLE genomes'

This is what I received for your first and second numbers:

MT-TF (Human Gene) ENSG00000210049 MT:577-647:1 Mitochondrially encoded tRNA phenylalanine [Source:HGNC Symbol;Acc:HGNC:7481] MT-TF (HGNC Symbol record with a description of mitochondrially encoded tRNA phenylalanine), with synonyms of MTTF, trnF, is associated with Gene ENSG00000210049
