Apologies for my ignorance as I am still an R amateur. Currently, I am trying to access a GEO dataset using the sample code that is computed via GEO2R. However, I stumble upon issues already on line 1 with the error message below:


gset <- getGEO("GSE13995", GSEMatrix =TRUE, AnnotGPL=FALSE)
Found 2 file(s)
Using locally cached version: /var/folders/58/cm6szd7s045g4z6dbtqzdyh80000gn/T//RtmpzJ4fko/GSE13995-GPL7752_series_matrix.txt.gz
Using locally cached version of GPL7752 found here:
Error in read.table(con, sep = "\t", header = FALSE, nrows = nseries) : 
  invalid 'nlines' argument


Some help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

I suspect there are corrupt files and or bugs in the libraries.


However, I managed to import the data in R without errors by first downloading the two "matrix"-files from here:

And then import from file

set1 = getGEO(filename="GSE13995-GPL7752_series_matrix.txt.gz")
set2 = getGEO(filename="GSE13995-GPL7753_series_matrix.txt.gz")

I got some warnings but I think they can be ignored.

I dont think this will work from inside the GEO2R webinterface. You have to do it locally.
