Mappings between probe identifiers and the names of genes the probe ids correspond to

Description

hgu133aGENENAME maps probe identifiers to the names of genes corresponding to the probe ids. Gene names are the descriptions used for gene reports that have been validated by a nomenclature committee or interim selected for display

Details

Gene names currently include both the official (validated by a nomenclature committee) and preferred names (interim selected for display) for genes. Efforts are being made to differentiate the two by adding a name to the vector.

Mappings were based on data provided by:

Examples

     # Convert to a list
     xx <- as.list(hgu133aGENENAME)
     # Remove probes that do not map to any GENENAME
     xx <- xx[!is.na(xx)]
     if(length(xx) > 0){
         # Gets the gene names for the first five probe ids
         xx[1:5]
         # Get the first one
         xx[[1]]
     }
