Hi, Is there any way to extract a list (grange) of all genes of E.Coli with their details like location, strand  type, name,.

There is a complication owing to the fact that research data on E. coli is typically organized by strain.  Once you've picked a strain among those listed at the ensembl bacterial genomes collection

you can download one, e.g.,

and then use rtracklayer to import

> ec1 = import("Escherichia_coli_k_12.GCA_000800765.1.30.gff3.gz")

> head(ec1,2)

  seqinfo: 1 sequence from an unspecified genome; no seqlengths


This should get you going.  To move further in the direction of an OrganismDb resource for this organism, consider the material about halfway down in

where the steps required to make Sac.cer3 are reviewed.  In this case you would unite the coordinate information acquired from ensembl with GO and the ENTREZ information in ....

Thanks Vincent, it worked for me.
