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 http://NCBI2R.wordpress.com for more information.
Internet access is required for almost all of these functions. Use the
function PrintNCBI2RInfo() for information.
