Mappings between PubMed identifiers and probe identifiers


PubMed http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/PubMed/ includes over 14 million citations for biomedical articles back to the 1950's. Each article has a unique PubMed identifier. xenopuslaevisPMID2PROBE maps PubMed identifiers to probe identifiers representing genes cited by the publications identified by the PubMed identifiers


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:
