I'm trying to use PANTHER.db to conduct pathway analysis on a set of differentially expressed genes, and I'm running into an error when loading PANTHER.  I install as usual:


But when I type PANTHER.db at the console, I obtain the following error:

Error in rsqlite_send_query(conn@ptr, statement) :
  external pointer is not valid

This error is quite frustrating, as there is little to no documentation for it and none for PANTHER, as far as I know.  Without properly loading PANTHER.db, there is no analysis that can be done with the PANTHER package.

Is this a version issue? Perhaps another package needs to be updated/installed?  I tried updating rsqlite with no luck.  Thanks very much for your help.

We cannot support any versions of Bioconductor other than the current release version. I would recommend upgrading to the current versions of R/Bioc, as you are two (!) years out of date.
