I have DNA Methylation data from GSE26126 (you can access the data here) which uses the Illumina HumanMethylation27 BeadChip technology.  Here is an example of what some of the gene IDs look like:

"cg00027083" "cg00035347" "cg00446235" "cg00563845" "cg00955230"

How do I convert these ID's into the standard gene names/symbols in R?

Thanks!

First, you should note that the mapping of CpGs to genes is not a straightforward thing to do, so converting CpG IDs to gene symbols isn't the same thing as e.g., converting an expression array probe ID to the gene it measures. The FDb.InfiniumMethylation.hg19 package is useful for doing the mapping you want. For an example, see the help for getNearest:

Annotate a group of probes supplied as a GenomicRanges object

Description:

     This function encapsulates the common task of finding what
     gene/tx/tss is closest to a list of probes, as might be the case
     after a model fit.

Examples:

       ## not run
       ##
       ## hm450 <- get450k()
       ## probenames <- c("cg16392865", "cg00395291", "cg09310185", "cg21749424")
       ## probes <- hm450[probenames]
       ##
       ## getNearestTSS(probes)
       ## getNearestTranscript(probes)
       ##
       ## Notice that cg16392865 sits within PTCRA, but the nearest TSS is CNPY3.
       ##

But also note that you would first use get27k, not get450k.
