The GEO sample files are tab-delimited .txt files. They have three required lines:
^SAMPLE = GSM21610 !sample_table_begin ... !sample_table_endThe first line should start with
^SAMPLE = followed by the sample name, the line
!sample_table_begin and the line
!sample_table_end. Between the
!sample_table_end, lines are the column contents of the sample.
Note that GEO sample importer will also work for concatenated GEO sample files -- allowing multiple samples to be imported in one go. Download a sample file containing concatenated sample files here:
