[BioC] reverse complement or no reverse complemnt on biomaRt / biomart.org

So, regardless if the gene is on the forward or on the reverse strand, the
"start coordinates" for any kind of sequence are always lower than the "end
e.g. for Gene ENSG00000150630, Transcript ENST00000280193 and Exon
Start: 177,713,319  	
End: 177,713,895

So, if the gene is on the reverse strand, the sequence actually goes from the
"end coordinates" to the "start coordinates".

Am I right?

Thanks a lot for all your help,
