GEO is a public functional genomics data repository supporting MIAME-compliant data submissions. Array- and sequence-based data are accepted. Tools are provided to help users query and download experiments and curated gene expression profiles.
GEO is an international public repository that archives and freely distributes microarray, next-generation sequencing, and other forms of high-throughput functional genomics data submitted by the research community.
The three main goals of GEO are to:
- Provide a robust, versatile database in which to efficiently store high-throughput functional genomic data.
- Offer simple submission procedures and formats that support complete and well-annotated data deposits from the research community.
- Provide user-friendly mechanisms that allow users to query, locate, review and download studies and gene expression profiles of interest.
