I'm sure this is a basic question, but I couldn't find an answer anywhere. Let's say I'm provided with the location of an amino acid or a nucleotide (for example, which lists the location as the ACADM gene, 985A>G (the nucleotide polymorphism) and 304 as the amino acid mutation (from Lys>Glu)). How would I go about now identifying the exact position of this on the chromosome? Eg: Chromosome 1, location 76123456?
Currently the only way I can think is to manually count 304 amino acids, or 985 nucleobases, from the start of the gene where the start location is listed. However this isn't practical. I downloaded some software (IGV & GenomeViewer) and can't see a way I can view the actual amino acid or nucleobase number from the start of the gene.
