Hi Martin,
Not all pathways end up being parsed and analyzed. There is a minimum number of connections that are needed to make any use of the topology. For instance if you look in the hsa03030.xml file you will see no relation (edge) between any node, as opposed to another random pathway (hsa05330) that has some relations defined. So if you are interested in those pathways, use general gene set analysis methods (see PLoS ONE 8(11): e79217 for a comparisons of methods available in Bioconductor).

So my question is, why can't I integrate hsa03030.xml,hsa03410.xml,hsa03420.xml,hsa03430.xml,hsa03440.xml
in the SPIA hsaSPIA.RData file?

[1] TRUE

But if I run

the pathways don't exist in the table.
