NCBI2R: Queries and Annotates SNPs, Genes and Pathway from NCBI

This annotates lists of SNPs and/or genes, with current information from NCBI (National Center for Biotechnology Information, U.S.A.). Functions are provided that with one command will provide annotation of the results from genome wide association studies to provide a broader context of their meaning. Other functions enable comparisons between a user's GWA results, and candidate snp/gene lists that are created from keywords, such as specific diseases, phenotypes or gene ontology terms. Commands are simple to follow and designed to work with R objects to integrate into existing workflows. The output produces text fields and weblinks to more information for items such as: gene descriptions, nucleotide positions, OMIM, pathways, phenotypes, and lists of interacting and neighboring genes. Annotation can then be used in R for further analysis, or the objects can be customized for use in spreadsheet programs or web browsers for users not familiar with R. Please see the website at for more information. Internet access is required for almost all of these functions. Use the function PrintNCBI2RInfo() for information.
