I am trying to setup an R interface to access Broad's connectivity map database. gCMAP and gCMAPWeb seem like the right tool. However, I didn't get far with either. I have installed the latest version of R and bioconductor installer. Running the following:

library( gCMAPWeb )

I get:

Error in paste("http://", listenAddr, ":", listenPort, appList[[i]]$path,  : 
  cannot coerce type 'closure' to vector of type 'character'

Any help will be much appreciated. Below are additional info on my setting.

Hi Afshin,

Are you by any chance using the RStudio IDE ? gCMAPWeb doesn't work with RStudio, so in case that's your environment, please try again using the standard R IDE.

Also, just to be clear: the gCMAP / gCMAPWeb package do not provide access to the Broad's data. You will need to download and preprocess the data yourself; the packages just provide some software infrastructure to analyze the data, not the data itself.
