Hi Lidia,

The answer will depend on the number of genes in your list. For a list 
with up to 500 genes, you can use the Biomart tool:


There is a tutorial for using the BioMart tool here:


Alternatively, for larger gene lists you could use the REST API:


You will need to use the GET xref/id endpoint to retreive all external 
references associated with your genes of interest. Documentation this 
endpoint can be found on the following page:


Best wishes
