I have a list of ENSEMBL ids of human lncRNA's for which I am trying to figure out the gene type (or biotype) eg. lincRNA, processed transcript, antisense, sense_overlapping, etc. Now, I have a GTF file (GENCODE v30 ) which contains the gene_id and gene_type argument in the 9th column. I could somehow try to use a code/script to map my IDs using this GTF file, but I was wondering whether there was an easier way to do it using online tools? I tried biomaRt but the current version of the ensemble release collapses the various types of lncRNAs to a single type ie. lncRNA. I really want to get the subtypes for each lncRNA.
P.S. The last GENCODE version with the lncRNA type 'split up' is the v30.
Thanks in advance :)
