I want to get an NCBI GEO report showing the number of samples per series or data set. Short of downloading all of GEO, anyone know how to do this? Is there a table of just metadata hidden somewhere?
Why not just look at the Entrez page? If you search GEO datasets, each data set record has a row that shows the number of samples for a given series. - Sandra
Dang it, I wish I could "like" Neil's reply. (edit: duh, like the blog post...) You're giving Pierre a run for his money for writing quick and effective scripts... ;) Thanks for the code. No need to send the output, since I'll need to adapt it a bit to grab more info too. Thanks much! - Andrew Su
