I want to carry out a meta-analysis of whole genome gene expression data in major depression.
The first step requires making a list of candidate genes that are differentially expressed in whole genome studies of depressed patients.
To do this I need to collate all the information I can find from databases and published studies. I have started searching for different RNAseq/microarray databases but this is quite a inefficient process, so I wondered if anyone can suggest good resources for facilitating my search. I would be very grateful for any tips on search tools, review papers with information on resources, lists of databases etc.
NB: the tissue type doesn't matter for the time being and I am not looking to analyse raw data at this point.
Thanks so much in advance!
