Hi,

I got an error when I tried to call genes suing bioMart.

genemart = useMart(biomart="ENSEMBL_MART_ENSEMBL",dataset="hsapiens_gene_ensembl");
Error in listMarts() : Unexpected format to the list of available marts.

Please check the following URL manually, and try ?listMarts for advice. http://www.ensembl.org:80/biomart/martservice?type=registry&requestid=biomaRt

Then I checked the link, it is the right list, so I think there is something wrong with the BioMart server. Hope this is the right way to report this error. Very appreciate it if you could fix it.

Thanks!

Dan

Same thing here:

ensembl = useEnsembl(biomart="ensembl", dataset="hsapiens_gene_ensembl") Error in bmRequest(request = request, ssl.verifypeer = ssl.verifypeer, : Not Found (HTTP 404).

I currently get an error when I visit the main Ensembl site. You can try querying one of the mirrors e.g.

mart <- useEnsembl(biomart = "ensembl", 
                   dataset = "hsapiens_gene_ensembl", 
                   mirror = "useast")

Values for the mirror argument are: useast, uswest, asia
