Question: A script to convert Ensembl, Unigene, Uniprot and RefSeq IDs to Symbol IDs

Hello, I am looking for a program/function that converts different sources of IDs to Symbol IDs. The script in R will be an added advantage ...

Thanks

Hello, check org.Hs.eg.db Bioconductor pkg for convertID betweens different identifiers.

Hi Neelam,

I don't have much idea about R, but you can try several other online servers for the same.

Biomart http://www.biomart.org/biomart/martview/942da133bec34876002f4e8002ea4cb1 is a general tool that enables you to extract a lot of different informations from databases - sequences, ontologies, transcripts, homologues - but maybe for converting gene ids is a bit too complex.

I recommend another possible solution to this http://idconverter.bioinfo.cnio.es/

Cheers

Hi Neelam,

I agree with rahul, you need to use org.Hs.eg.db Bioconductor package with following script to convert the desire Ids. This script are being written by Benjamin Tovar Cisneros... for more info please visit http://tata-box-blog.blogspot.in/search/label/R

Hi Neelam,

If you are looking for Excel plugins for the same then try Id Mapper which integrates directly into Microsoft Excel. It empowers its users to enrich their results with biological identifiers (or any other information currently available through our service) without requiring them to leave Excel.
