BioMart Convert IDs

BioMart is a very handy tool when you want to convert IDs from different databases. The following is a list of 34 IDs of zebrafish proteins from the NCBI RefSeq database:

Click New. Choose the ENSEMBL Genes database. Choose the Danio rerio genes dataset.

Click on Filters in the left panel. Expand the GENE section by clicking on the + box. Select Input external references ID list - RefSeq peptide ID(s) and enter the list of IDs in the text box (either comma separated or as a list). HINT: You may have to scroll down the menu to see these.

Count shows 37 genes.

Click on Attributes in the left panel. Select the Features attributes page. Expand the External section by clicking on the + box. Select HGNC symbol and RefSeq Peptide ID from the External References section.

Click the Results button on the toolbar. Select View All rows as HTML or export all results to a file.
