Use these scenarios to test your knowledge of the GEO databases.
You want to find all gene expression studies in GEO that do next generation sequencing on human cancer cells. How would you find these datasets?
You want to see a visualization of the top differentially expressed genes in the GDS5085 dataset. What Data analysis tool would you use?
You want to know information about expression of the brca2 gene in various tissues and cell lines. Which database is the more efficient way to find this information: GEO DataSets, or GEO Profiles? How many results do you get for studies that have information about this gene in human breast cancer?
You find a dataset in GEO that meets your criteria perfectly, but it isn't curated. What tool can you use to analyze uncurated data? Using GSE33253 as an example:
