How to assign gene names to ensembl IDs if species not in Biomart

Hello,

I would like to align my data to bGalGal1.pat.whiteleghornlayer.GRCg7w. I found the link on ensembl so I already made my index for kallisto.

After mapping I normally use biomart to assign gene names to the Ensembl IDs. However, I don't think that this species is in biomart. When I do searchDatasets(mart = ensembl, pattern = "gallus") I only find the bGalGal1.mat.broiler.GRCg7b version in biomart. Is there any other way I should look for it in biomart?

Otherwise how can I assign gene names to the Ensembl IDs? Would using the gtf file from Ensembl work for that?

Thank you

Genomax is exactly right. Just for further context, the annotation for bGalGal1.mat.broiler.GRCg7b is the only chicken annotation available in Ensembl BioMart.

Thank you. I ended up using that gtf file, the t2g.py file from https://github.com/pachterlab/kallisto-transcriptome-indices/releases and tximport to assign the gene names.
