Mappings between probe identifiers and Mendelian Inheritance in Man (MIM) identifiers

Description

The OMIM database (Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man) http://www3.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?db=OMIM contains data for human genes and genetic disorders. hu6800OMIM maps probe identifiers to MIM numbers that can be used to search the database

Details

OMIM is based upon the book Mendelian Inheritance in Man (V. A. McKusick) and focuses primarily on inherited or heritable genetic diseases. It contains textual information, pictures, and reference information that can be searched using various terms, among which the MIM number is one.

Mappings were based on data provided by:

Examples

    # Convert the environment to a list
    xx <- as.list(hu6800OMIM)
    # Remove probe ids that do not map to any MIM number
    xx <- xx[!is.na(xx)]
    if(length(xx) > 0){
        # The MIM numbers for the first two elements of XX
        xx[1:2]
        # Get the first one
        xx[[1]]
    }
