character string specifying the GSE ID
character string specifying the GPL ID. The default value is
The function uses the corresponding GDS (if available for that GSE) in order to retrieve the phenotypic data. If a GDS is not available, it generates phenotypic data based on the sample characteristics, sample source, and sample title specified for each GSM. In case of a double-channel experiment, sample characteristics and sample source are given for both channels.
matrix containing a row for each GSM and columns for the
