Hi Shih-Te,

Use the lookUp function (devel version of the annotate package) or
multiget (older version) to obtain the quantities of interest.


> lookUp("YAL001C","YEAST","GO")
        <NA>         <NA>         <NA>
"GO:0000127" "GO:0003709" "GO:0006384"

> multiget(c("YAL001C","YAL002W"),envir=YEASTGO)
        <NA>         <NA>         <NA>
"GO:0000127" "GO:0003709" "GO:0006384"
        <NA>         <NA>         <NA>
"GO:0045324" "GO:0005554" "GO:0005624"
KEGG information is available for some organisms, but not (IIRC) yeast,
yet.  Do help(package=YEAST) to see the available annotation data.
