GEOquery in pipelines

PMCID: 5822876
PMID: 29577053
DOI: 10.1155/2018/9412387

[…] and the list of gses is shown in supplementary table . gse2053 is the only dataset generated from human ra sample assays. datasets from other species or other tissues were filtered out. the geoquery and limma r packages were then used to screen the differentially expressed genes in ra (ra-degs). functional enrichment analyses conducted by david and genecards [, ], which are based […]
