MatchMiner: a tool for batch navigation among gene and gene product identifiers

Genome Biol. 2003;4(4):R27. doi: 10.1186/gb-2003-4-4-r27. Epub 2003 Mar 25.


MatchMiner is a freely available program package for batch navigation among gene and gene product identifier types commonly encountered in microarray studies and other forms of 'omic' research. The user inputs a list of gene identifiers and then uses the Merge function to find the overlap with a second list of identifiers of either the same or a different type or uses the LookUp function to find corresponding identifiers.
