I need to do a Rna seq on SRP152983, I need to get the fastq files of a number of samples in that SRA, is it possible for me to get it as a collection or do I have to get the fastq files separately for each one of them?
4) Another method which I like and recommend(and I think this is what you are looking for) because it is easier by directly importing data from SRA as collection datatype( very handy especially if you are uploading fastq files that is paired-end). Steps to do this:
1) Go to GEO website using your GSE accession ID.
2) Click on SRA Run Selector ( you see it below in the page)
3)You should see all samples of the experiments or runs. Choose the samples you want from the experiment and click on galaxy from the select window.
4) You will be transferred directly to galaxy server and your data will be uploaded automatically.
