Dear All,

I was wondering if it is possible to mine the published studies for a species based on their gene annotation. For example, if I want all the transcriptome studies for human transcription factors. Is it possible to make this kind of queries on some database?

Currently I am making the following search in GEO:

(transcription factors and transcriptome) AND "Homo sapiens"[porgn:__txid9606]

Wondering if there is any better way to do this?

Thanks.

Look here, for example:

or here

I usually don't use GEO, sorry

Try NCBI www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov) with your query. I have done it (without tax id) and got the following :

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/gquery/?term=%28transcription+factors+and+transcriptome%29+AND+%22Homo+sapiens%22+

This is data from 13 databases including GEO by the way...

I would suggest also to search for RNA-seq, since transcriptome might not always be exactly written there.
