You can use the org.hs-type annotation package, which uses entrez gene
id as the key.  So, you would need to get the Entrez Gene ID for the
genes on your chip.  Given that you have RefSeq, Ensembl, and Symbol,
you can use the same annotation package to get back to Entrez Gene ID
from those other ID types.
