hi all, I want to get a list of alternative gene symbols for a genes for e.g as they appear in OMIM.

However, I want to get them from BioMart, I am using R.

Is it possible to get alternative gene symbols from BioMart just like they are in OMIM.

Thanks in advance.

I am afraid gene synonyms are not available from Ensembl BioMart. However, they are available through the HGNC BioMart (attributes: 'Previous Symbols' and 'Aliases'). As far as I can gather from its homepage, you should be able to access the HGNC BioMart using Bioconductor / biomaRt (which I assume is what you are using).
