Hello experts,

I've recently run into an issue while attempting to visualize or plot a network using the STRINGdb package.

Forgive me if this is a silly question, I'm just learning :)

>archivo_tsv=read.delim("example.tsv" , header=TRUE, sep="\t")
>string_db <- STRINGdb$new(version="12", species=10090, score_threshold=400,network_type="full", input_directory="",protocol='http')
>mapped_data <- string_db$map(archivo_tsv, "ID", removeUnmappedRows=FALSE)

Your code seems ok.

Does the vignette produce the same error? link to STRINGdb R script vignette

Does the vignette produce the same error?

No.

Anyway, I finally solved the problem. I don't know why, but I removed: protocol='http' from this:

string_db <- STRINGdb$new(version="12", species=10090, score_threshold=400,network_type="full", input_directory="",protocol='http')

and now there is no error

Thank you.

ok. Forcing non-secure protocol should not be needed anymore, due to changes in the underlying library. However, I will look at why "HTTP" produced the error you see.

Thanks for the feedback.
