[BioC] Specific annotation information from ExpressionSet

Is there any functions in bioconductor that can take an ExpressionSet,
find the correct annotation object and then get information? So the
function would use annotation() to get the object and then use that
object for a specific purpose

I have two uses for this:
1) Given a REFSEQ ID find the corresponding probes in an ExpressionSet
and print the expression for those probes e.g.
getExprFromREFSEQ(REFSEQID, ExpressionSet)
2) Given a probe and ExpressionSet find the gene symbol.
getSymbol(ExpressionSet, ProbeID)

If not, any ideas on the best way to do this?
