biolink: Create Hyperlinks to Biological Databases and Resources

Generate urls and hyperlinks to commonly used biological databases and resources based on standard identifiers. This is primarily useful when writing dynamic reports that reference things like gene symbols in text or tables, allowing you to, for example, convert gene identifiers to hyperlinks pointing to their entry in the NCBI Gene database. Currently supports NCBI Gene, PubMed, Gene Ontology, CRAN and Bioconductor.
