Hi. I am using biomart to convert ensembl transcript id to gene symbol. However there seems to be something wrong. Because in the output there is an ensembl transcript id which has two symbol. Here are my script.
> ensembl <- useMart(host="dec2013.archive.ensembl.org", biomart = "ENSEMBL_MART_ENSEMBL",dataset = "hsapiens_gene_ensembl") > result <- getBM(attributes=c("ensembl_transcript_id", "hgnc_symbol"), filters = "ensembl_transcript_id", values = values, mart= ensembl)
The output is :
ensembl_transcript_id hgnc_symbol ENST00000226218 SEBOX ENST00000226218 VTN
In the script I use Ensembl 74: Dec 2013. Then I try Ensembl 75.The output is the same for Ensembl 75. However when I use the archive Ensembl 74 http://dec2013.archive.ensembl.org/index.html to search this transcript id myself, it only shows symbol VTN.
Thanks for any comments.
