Map between PubMed Identifiers and Manufacturer Identifiers


hgu95av2PMID2PROBE is an R environment that provides mappings between PubMed ids and manufacturer ids.


Each PubMed id is mapped to a named vector of manufacturer ids. The name represents the PubMed id and the vector contains all manufacturer ids that are represented by that PubMed id. The length of the vector may be one or longer, depending on how many manufacturer ids are mapped to a given 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:
