Hello, I am new at RNA-Seq data analysis and I want to analyze the data and do some analyses such as finding differentially expressed genes. My data set is from NCBI GEO and coded as GSE80336. Link is here:

I see data is not normalized. I used getGEO() command. When I used exprs() command, I have this message:

Error in (function (classes, fdef, mtable)  : 
  unable to find an inherited method for function ‘exprs’ for signature ‘"list"’

What is the real problem here? How can I find non-normalized expression matrix?

I also wanted to RAW data but there is not any RAW data file in supplementary section. 

How can I reach RAW data, normalize it and find significantly changed genes. I really need help I am stuck. 

Should I start with SRA files?

Also there is a file called "Counts.txt" in supplementary. What is this file actually and can I use it?

Thank you.

Echoing the answer by Aaron, here is the code to download all supplemental files for a given GEO accession.

sfiles = getGEOSuppFiles('GSE80336')
fnames = rownames(sfiles)
# there is only one supplemental file
b2 = read.delim(fnames[1],header=TRUE)

Yes there is only one supplement file and it is the Counts file. Mostly there are RAW_data files in supplemental files but this data is different. Probably I will use counts data for analyses.

Thank you for answer.
