Dear BioC list and esp. Sean, I'm trying to download GSE15197 using GEOquery and get the following error: > gse15197 <- getGEO(GEO = "GSE15197", destdir = ".", AnnotGPL = TRUE) Found 1 file(s) GSE15197_series_matrix.txt.gz trying URL ' ries_matrix.txt.gz' ftp data connection made, file length 6566671 bytes opened URL ================================================== downloaded 6.3 Mb File stored at: /tmp/RtmpDBAlMH/GPL6480.soft Error in `row.names<`(`*tmp*`, value = c("A_23_P100001", "A_23_P100011", : missing values in 'row.names' are not allowed > traceback() 7: stop("missing values in 'row.names' are not allowed") 6: `row.names<`(`*tmp*`, value = c("A_23_P100001", "A_23_P100011", "A_23_P100022", "A_23_P100056", "A_23_P100074", "A_23_P100092", [... lots of Agilent oligo IDs ...] "ETG10_13482", "ETG10_195139", "ETG10_234183", "ETG10_236652", "GE_BrightCorner", NA, "RC1", "RC10", "RC11", "RC12", "RC2", "RC3", "RC4", "RC5", "RC6", "RC7", "RC8", "RC9")) 5: `row.names<-`(`*tmp*`, value = c("A_23_P100001", "A_23_P100011", "A_23_P100022", "A_23_P100056", "A_23_P100074", "A_23_P100092", [... lots of Agilent oligo IDs ...] "ETG10_13482", "ETG10_195139", "ETG10_234183", "ETG10_236652", "GE_BrightCorner", NA, "RC1", "RC10", "RC11", "RC12", "RC2", "RC3", "RC4", "RC5", "RC6", "RC7", "RC8", "RC9")) 4: `rownames<-`(`*tmp*`, value = c("A_23_P100001", "A_23_P100011", "A_23_P100022", "A_23_P100056", "A_23_P100074", "A_23_P100092", [... lots of Agilent oligo IDs ...] "ETG10_13482", "ETG10_195139", "ETG10_234183", "ETG10_236652", "GE_BrightCorner", NA, "RC1", "RC10", "RC11", "RC12", "RC2", "RC3", "RC4", "RC5", "RC6", "RC7", "RC8", "RC9")) 3: parseGSEMatrix(file.path(tmp, b[i])) 2: getAndParseGSEMatrices(GEO) 1: getGEO(GEO = "GSE15197", destdir = ".", AnnotGPL = TRUE) which apparently occurs after successful download of the data files when trying to parse GPL6480 annotation (?) and according to the error message the NA near the end of the value list may be the culprit. Setting AnnotGPL to FALSE gives the same result. Since the identical procedure usually works, is there a problem with this particular data set or am I missing something?
