Hello,

I am trying to use the getGeneLengthAndGCContent() function from the EDASeq R package to obtain gene lengths and GC content for each gene in a honeybee (apis mellifera) dataset. An example subset of these genes are as follows:

"GB40001" "GB40002" "GB40003" "GB40004" "GB40005" "GB40006"

Upon running the command on an example gene as follows and using the code for apis mellifera ("ame"):

getGeneLengthAndGCContent("GB40001", org="ame")

I receive the error:

Error in getGeneLengthAndGCContent("GB40001", org = "ame", mode = "org.db") : Only ENTREZ or ENSEMBL gene IDs are supported.

How can I convert my list of genes (in format of GB40001) into a list of ENTREZ or ENSEMBL gene IDs?

Thank you for any support on accomplishing this step.

It seems IDs such as GB40001 are THE Gene IDs used in Ensembl Metazoa.

Thanks, Denise. Just checking, but how should I interpret this Error then if it seems I am providing the correct information?
