Hi Team,

I am trying to run orthologue mapping of species in R. Since last Thursday I am not able to execute the function successfully before it was working fine. When I contacted the ENSEMBL helpdesk they were able to connect to BioMart using the web interface but not using R indicating a potential problem with the BioMart interface and not ensembl servers. Can you please help me with the same? Following is the error I am getting. I tried different mirror sites to make it work still I am getting the same error.

Ensembl site unresponsive, trying uswest mirror Error in curl::curl_fetch_memory(url, handle = handle) : Peer's Certificate issuer is not recognized. Called from: curl::curl_fetch_memory(url, handle = handle) Browse[1]>


convertRatGeneList <- function(x){
  require("biomaRt")
  human = useMart("ensembl", dataset = "hsapiens_gene_ensembl",host = "https://www.ensembl.org")
  rat = useMart("ensembl", dataset = "rnorvegicus_gene_ensembl",host = "https://www.ensembl.org")
  genesV2 = getLDS(attributes = c("rgd_symbol"), filters = "rgd_symbol", values = x , mart = rat, attributesL = c("hgnc_symbol"), martL = human, uniqueRows=T)
  humanx <- unique(genesV2[, 2])
  # Print the first 6 genes found to the screen
  print(head(humanx))
  return(humanx)
}

You are running a bunch of devel packages that are prior to the just released version 3.14 of Bioconductor. You should upgrade to the release version and try again.

To be clear, I have no problems connecting, so you should check your install first.

James is right that problems starting on Thursday would tie in with the release of Bioconductor 3.14. You can use BiocManager::valid() to check what version you're using (and if there are any package conflicts) and BiocManager::install(version = "3.14") to make sure if you're using the latest versions.


If that doesn't help, what happens if you replace your calls to useMart() with useEnsembl()? In this specific case, where you're using CentOS, I'd also advise setting the argument mirror = "www".

I've seen issue in the past with certain versions of Linux not accepting the SSL certificates that the Ensembl mirror sites have. useEnsembl() tries to detect if this is a problem and will change some settings in the background - however I don't think I've ever seen "Peer's Certificate issuer is not recognized", so it may not help here.
