Hi Nick,

If you are having a hard time finding an annotation package that is
exactly what you used for the experiment, you can also just generate
one.  Just follow the SQLForge vignette from the AnnotationDbi package. 
You can find this here:


Once you have generated the package,  you can just build and install it
as any other R package.

Let me know if you have further questions,
