Dear all,

I'm working with -omics datasets. Since the gene identifiers change all the time, it's really tricky to merge datasets based on the gene IDs, esp. when I have to combine data from different sources over a relatively long period of time. A lot of information is lost if I don't "synchronize" the IDs. To update the IDs is also not easy. I want to know what the more efficient and better ways are to deal with these situations. Could you share with me your expertise and experience?

Thanks a lot.
