I don't quite understand the block_sizes and block_locations fields. What I get but I think I'm wring is that the block_sizes field indicates the size of the 2 exons a,b (blocks) joined by the spliced junction?

And the block_locations field would indicate the position relative to the junction (feature) start position where the 2 exons a,b each begin? But this really makes no sense to me as this would mean that [as the first value of this field is 0] the first exon starts right where the splice junction begins, which is actually where it (the exon) ends.

Thanks for sharing your knowledge,
