I am receiving the following errors when using Biomart - they seem to be persistent so wanted to see if there is something up with the system. I did check the status and website and both seem to indicate the service is fine.
Thanks for the help/insight.
ensembl <- biomaRt::useMart("ensembl", host = "www.ensembl.org", ssl.verifypeer = FALSE) biomaRt::getBM(attributes = c('ensembl_gene_id', 'external_gene_name', 'description'), filters = c('ensembl_gene_id'), values = geneIds, mart = biomaRt::useDataset("hsapiens_gene_ensembl", mart = ensembl))
Human gives one error
Mouse/Rat gives a 500 error
