Question: Genomic Region For Ncbi Transcript(/Gene) Accessions

I retrieved a lot of mRNA accession's and their genomic exon-intron structure via the Eutilities tool in perl and Bioperl, retrieving and parsing a genbankfile containing all results from the following query:

"Mus musculus"[orgn] AND "refseq"[Filter] AND "mrna"[Feature key]

Current problem is that I can only retrieve the contig-location (the location within each NT_..., NW...,... entries) while I need the genomic location of each exon. Any suggestions on how I can retrieve the genomic location of those contigs (with Eutilities and perl if possible)?

If you want this for everything in the genome, why not just pick up the GFF3 file on the FTP site:

I discovered this file 2 days ago (via a colleague) and it seems that this is indeed exactly what I needed (I'm not very familiar with the ncbi data and GFF files yet so I missed them when I started my search). Thanks!
