I have the entrez IDs of 100 proteins and I have put them in a list and trying to use R's mgeneSim function from the GOSemSim package, but I am getting the following error:

There were 50 or more warnings (use warnings() to see the first 50)

The contents of the list are:

Even the following code fails:

mgeneSim(c("Q9Y243", "P06213"))

Read the docs. The input to mgeneSim should be a list of Entrez gene IDs. You're using UniProt accession numbers.

Thanks, I had read the manual! But my mistake was that I didn't realize I was using UNIPROT IDs. I converted them to Entrez Gene IDs using bitr('P08069', 'UNIPROT', 'ENTREZID') function and then my code worked perfectly fine.
