[BioC] GenomeGraphs error

thank you for reporting this! There were two issues:
1. GenomeGraphs tries to use the BioMart webservices at Ensembl to query
for a property called "biotype" (a.k.a. "structure_biotype"?), which
perhaps existed in the past but doesn't seem to be there any more.
Steffen Durinck, the author of the GenomeGraphs package, or Rhoda might
be able to know better what's going on here.
2. The getBM function produced a slightly obscure error message, which
made it difficult to diagnose the error. I have fixed that in the devel
version of the biomaRt package.
Thank you and best wishes
