I am very interested to query PubMed using Bioconductor. I can load annotate, affy, affydata without trouble. I've run RMA on data sets without problems. For some reason, I am running into trouble when trying to follow the instructions in "HowTo:Automated Querying of PubMed Data". I can't load hgu95av2. That library is "not found". > library(hgu95av2) Error in library(hgu95av2) : There is no package called 'hgu95av2' Since this is the case, I downloaded it from Bioconductor and installed it in my working directory using R CMD INSTALL -l "." hgu95av2_1.3.1.tar.gz It seemed to install just fine, but when I try to read it into R using library(hgu95av2, lib.loc=".") and various permutations of that command, the library is still not found. I tried to get around this by sourcing in the hgu95av2 file that is in local/hgu95av2/R...This did not work either. Any suggestions ? I should note that I am actually interested in rae230a chips and so I first tried everything stated above using the rae230a library. Same trouble. Because of that, I thought I would try the hgu95av2 to see if I could get it working as it is the library explicitly listed in the write up aforementioned. It didn't work. Finally, I noticed back in August that there was some problem with rae230a and b files that was going to be fixed. Was that ever done ? Thanks for any help!
