 You need to have something that maps to something that is known (what
 is a gene ID?), if you can get to UniGene or LocusLink etc, then
 there are many ways (both in Bioconductor and in many other
 resources) to map from those to PubMed. LocusLink is among the more 
 common. For example, if you are using human genes once you get to
  LocusLink IDs you can use the humanLLMappings package to get to PMID
