I am trying to get the HGNC gene name for a handful of genes where I only have a synonym name using biomaRt in R for some downstream processing.
Two examples are:
- WHRN is DFNB31 in HGNC
- SANS is USH1C in HGNC
From what I can tell by
listAttributes() there aren't any synonym or alais attributes to retrieve, but maybe I have missed something?
Alternatively, anyone have a method to do this within R without downloading a ton of flat files, eg: Biostar: Finding Gene Symbol Synonyms
