Is there an alternative to mesh2gene for linking MeSH terms to genes?

The http://www.ncibi.org/gene2mesh.html site appears to be down for months now (click on "Launch Gene2MeSH via gene2mesh.ncibi.org") and I've been unable to find an alternative so far...

I think you could use the MESH.db package in Bioconductor to annotate your genes. I have never used, but you should be able to do something like:

library("MeSH.db")
select(MeSH.db, keys = myGenes, keytype = "ENTREZ", columns = "MESH")

It depends on the MeSHDbi package from which you could retrieve other data form that database if needed
