It uses chromosomal regions in the BED file format. For this type of file, there are three required pieces of information needed: 

  • Chromosome Number
  • Chromosome Start
  • Chromosome End

So for example, if you're dealing with a gene on chromosome 16 that spans the regions 53,701,692 to 54,158,512, it would look like the following in a BED format file: 

chr16 53701692 54158512

BED files are usually designated with the .bed file format, but in the case of liftover, you can simply open your text editor, make sure your genomic coordinates are in the format I described, and paste it in on the website.
