A Ruby gem for accessing the freely available IDClight (IDConverter Light) web service at the Spanish National Cancer Centre at idclight.bioinfo.cnio.es, which convert between different types of gene ID systems such as Hugo and Entrez. Queries are screen scraped (yucky, I know) due to lack of an actually web services API.
