I am using the RnaSeqGeneEdgeRQL library to perform some analysis using the RNA-Seq count data (GSE113964_RNASeqMatBloodCount_Tarca.csv.gz) present in the GSE113964 using the below code. I am getting the error message. Is this a network related issue?

FileURL <- paste(
download.file(FileURL, "GSE113964_RNASeqMatBloodCount_Tarca.csv.gz")

download.file(FileURL, "GSE113964_RNASeqMatBloodCount_Tarca.csv.gz")

trying URL ''
Error in download.file(FileURL, "GSE113964_RNASeqMatBloodCount_Tarca.csv.gz") : 
  cannot open URL ''
In addition: Warning message:
In download.file(FileURL, "GSE113964_RNASeqMatBloodCount_Tarca.csv.gz") :
  cannot open URL '': HTTP status was '404 Not Found'

Thank you,

It looks like NCBI might have changed how links are generated.


For learning how to perform DE analysis (which is the purpose of that package), I would manually download the files required and move onto the real DE analysis. If you want to automate the download process, there's better methods.
