Hi all,

When I have tried to install package dependencies of WGCNA, I have got the following error in the step of loading GO.db package after download completed:

Can anyone help me to solve this problem?

Thanks

The current version of RSQLite is not backward compatible with your older version of R / Bioconductor. Your options are to either use a current version of R (and hence Bioconductor) or to use an old version of RSQLite, as explained here. It is better in the long term to use a current version of R.

Agreed.  The latest GO.db package in Bioconductor 3.0 requires R 3.1.2

By the way, we will feature the latest GO methodology in iPathwayGuide with our visualizations in an upcoming release (April).
