I'm working with microarray datasets. I usually convert the original probe ids to HUGO ids using online tools such as MadGene (http://cardioserve.nantes.inserm.fr/madtools/madgene/).
Is there any API/tool that converts any type of probe IDs (e.g affymetrix: 114_r_at, Illumina: GI_10047089-S, ILMN_1651358 etc.) into HUGO ids?
I'm aware of Biomart but you need to load the chip database upfront. I'd like something more generic and flexible.
