Is the STRING db server down? I am getting this error when trying to initialize the STRING object:
string <- STRINGdb()
Error in open.connection(file, "rt") :
cannot open the connection to 'http://string.uzh.ch/permanent/string/current_version'
In addition: Warning message:
In open.connection(file, "rt") :
URL 'http://string.uzh.ch/permanent/string/current_version': status was 'Couldn't connect to server'
