that looks like the same problem I posted in Problem with biomart's listMarts function . We'll see, somebody for sure will find out what's going on.

cheers, jo

Alternatively (as stated on the biomart.org News page), change the host to "www.ensembl.org".

> listMarts(host="www.ensembl.org")
               biomart               version
1 ENSEMBL_MART_ENSEMBL      Ensembl Genes 82
2     ENSEMBL_MART_SNP  Ensembl Variation 82
3 ENSEMBL_MART_FUNCGEN Ensembl Regulation 82
4    ENSEMBL_MART_VEGA               Vega 62
5                pride        PRIDE (EBI UK)

Or for plants:

For plants, this works for me:

listMarts(host="plants.ensembl.org")
ensembl <- useMart(biomart="plants_mart", host="plants.ensembl.org")
listDatasets(ensembl)
...

as the main portal is not available, you need to specify one their other serers.

this is working (mouse mart, but changeable):

ensembl = useMart(biomart = "ENSEMBL_MART_ENSEMBL",dataset="mmusculus_gene_ensembl", host = "jul2015.archive.ensembl.org")

this uses the latest archived version, Ensembl 81 (http://jul2015.archive.ensembl.org/index.html)

I have the same problem.

I have used biomaRt to access gramene data in the past using the default server. Now I'm not able to use it, here is the code:

 

> listMarts()
Space required after the Public Identifier
SystemLiteral " or ' expected
SYSTEM or PUBLIC, the URI is missing
Opening and ending tag mismatch: hr line 7 and body
Opening and ending tag mismatch: body line 4 and html

As 'listMarts' using ensembl.gramene.org as host listed correct databases I supposed other commands would work with it but it is not the case.

The error messages don't show instantly but after few minutes.

How could I use gramene in biomaRt?
