Hi, I am hanging around to look for hg19 transcript annotations together with cDNA fasta files.

From UCSC, I can download the gene annotation, but without transcripts. I know that I can infer from the genome once I get the transcript annotation, but is there any place where I can download the transcript annotation and cDNA Fasta files?

I also would like to know the correspondence between the genes and transcripts. Say, transcripts A, B and C are from gene G.

For the transcript annotation file, I use the genePredToGtf script from UCSC which allows you to create a GTF annotation file. You can find a detailed explanation of how to download and use the script here:

Just to clarify in case anyone in the future uses genePredToGtf, in the 2nd step the section "region should be set to "position" instead of genome" should only be followed for the example and not for the actual GTF derivation. Leave it as "genome" when actually deriving a GTF file in this manner.

I came across your post while looking to download hg19 Transcript Annotation file with correspondence between transcripts and gene.

Could you please let me know where you were able to download it from.
