I just figure out the way to query UTR sequence from ensembl by biomart tool.

It is very simple compare with using bioperl to parse gbk file to extract UTR sequence.

require(biomaRt)
require(org.Hs.eg.db)
 
ensembl = useMart("ensembl", dataset = "hsapiens_gene_ensembl")
 
eg <- mappedkeys(org.Hs.egGO)
 
utr <- getSequence(id=eg, type="entrezgene", seqType="3utr", mart=ensembl)
 
outfile <- file("human-3utr.fa", "w")
for (i in 1:nrow(utr)) {
	h = paste(c(">", utr[i,2]), collapse="")
	writeLines(h, outfile)
	writeLines(utr[i,1], outfile)
}
close(outfile)
