aliases2entrez: Converts Human gene symbols to entrez IDs

Queries multiple resources authors HGNC (2019) <>, authors limma (2015) <doi:10.1093/nar/gkv007> to find the correspondence between evolving nomenclature of human gene symbols, aliases, previous symbols or synonyms with stable, curated gene entrezID from NCBI database. This allows fast, accurate and up-to-date correspondence between human gene expression datasets from various date and platform (e.g: gene symbol: BRCA1 - ID: 672).
