I am trying to get some queries from biomaRt package. I am defining the next connection:

snp_db <- useMart("ENSEMBL_MART_SNP", dataset="hsapiens_snp", host="")

and I get the following message:

Error in listMarts(host = host, path = path, port = port, includeHosts = TRUE,  : 
  Unexpected format to the list of available marts.
Please check the following URL manually, and try ?listMarts for advice.

When I go to the URL, the server status is down.

Thank you very much.
