I am having trouble downloading data from TCGA. An example output is given below
> library(TCGAbiolinks) > BRCA_RNASeqV2_version <- TCGAquery_Version(tumor = "brca", platform = "illuminahiseq_rnaseqv2") Retrieving old version information, please wait... Error in download.file(url, method = method, ...) : cannot open URL 'http://tcga-data.nci.nih.gov/tcgadccws/GetHTML?query=Archive[revision=10][baseName=*brca*][deployLocation=*illuminahiseq_rnaseqv2*][name=*Level_3*]'
1. Is this because of the recent changes in TCGA? TCGA has posted the following info on their website " 06/10/2016 - Announcement :- As the TCGA DCC contract comes to an end, the TCGA Data Portal and services will be taken offline on July 15th, 2016. ......TCGA data will continue to be hosted at the Genomics Data Commons ( https://gdc.nci.nih.gov/). "
2. Is there a workaround for this problem or should I wait till a patch/update is released by the TCGAbiolinks developers?
Thanks and Regards,
