I'd like to automatically download the tar files from the following links, does anyone knows how to do that?
Kind of like using wget...
check out the tool aspera. GEO supports it.
The download speed will blow you away.
You can also check out cURL: http://curl.haxx.se/
You can automate any task with CRON on unix plateforms.
Never mind, just figured it out. I can go to the ftp site and do wget:
Check the parameter -b, love it, sends the download to background and generates log. Good for multiple downloads.
Thanks for the suggestion!
GEO should provide a automatical tools to download the data, such as fastq-dump
Just a note that the GEOquery bioconductor package does this for a living, if you happen to be targeting R for further processing/analysis. See the help for getGEOSuppFiles() and getGEO().
