BridgeDbR Tutorial

BridgeDb is a combination of an application programming interface (API), library, and set of data files for mapping identifiers for identical objects [1]. Identifier mapping databases are available for gene products and metabolites. This Bioconductor Vignette explains how to use BridgeDb in the R environment and describes the basic concepts (identifiers, data sources, mapping databases), and how to use BridgeDb mapping databases for identifier mapping, using several code examples.
