Dear All, I am trying to analyze a Microarray series data using "GEOquery". I get the below error when trying to extract the information. > gse = getGEO("GSE15709"); > Meta(gse) Error in function (classes, fdef, mtable) : unable to find an inherited method for function "Meta", for signature "list" > GSMList(gse)[[1]] Error in function (classes, fdef, mtable) : unable to find an inherited method for function "GSMList", for signature "list" Thanks in advance for your help. Regards, Kishor

Per the documentation, this returns a list of ExpressionSet objects. So, gse[[1]] is an ExpressionSet. The accessors that you are using above are for returns from calls to getGEO() with GSEMatrix=FALSE. Unless there is a specific need to get information from the full GSE SOFT file, I would recommend staying with GSEMatrix=TRUE and working with the more standard ExpressionSet object(s). Hope that helps. Sean [[alternative HTML version deleted]]
