I did look at AnnBuilder but the basic vignette suggested that I should
look in the advanced vignette for what I would like to do. I didn't find
the advanced vignette at that time. I shall have a look at AnnotationDbi.

I did search the email list archives. Nothing came up. Can you suggest a
good search term?

ENSMUSG genes are mouse genes. Is there an annotation package that will
work for me? How could I have found it without asking here? Which
threads? From a wealth of packages on the annotation packages page it is
very hard to determine which might be relevant.
