This is combined bash/R script that will use a file with human ENSEMBLE geneIDs in a first column of a file and append a gene name to it, while keeping the structure of the file from other columns. Ensemble2genename sets its host to ensembl.org thus it could be especially useful when biomaRt site is down.
