Hi Hollis,

See here:


at the bottom right of the page. It will take some sleuthing, and may 
require the install of an older version of R, but all the previous 
versions of BioC including the metadata are still available.

I think an old version of org.Rn.eg.db would do the trick but the current version is also updated. Is there any way to get an older version that would have the older mappings, or is there a way to easily map the obsolete RefSeq IDs to the updated ones? I'm aware of Eutils, but if there's an existing solution I'd prefer not to reinvent the wheel. Thanks!
