Map between Manufacturer Identifiers and PubMed Identifiers


hgu95av2PMID is an R environment that provides mappings between manufacturer ids and PubMed ids.


Each manufacturer id is mapped to a named vector of PubMed ids. The name associated with each vector corresponds to the manufacturer id. The length of the vector may be one or greater, depending on how many PubMed ids a given manufacturer id is mapped to. An NA is reported for any manufacturer id that cannot be mapped to a PubMed id.

Titles, abstracts, and possibly full texts of articles can be obtained from PubMed by providing a valid PubMed id. The pubmed function of annotate can also be used for the same purpose.

Mappings were based on data provided by:
