A wrapper for Gemma's Restful API to access curated gene expression data and differential expression analyses

Bioconductor version: Release (3.17)

Low- and high-level wrappers for Gemma's RESTful API. They enable access to curated expression and differential expression data from over 10,000 published studies. Gemma is a web site, database and a set of tools for the meta-analysis, re-use and sharing of genomics data, currently primarily targeted at the analysis of gene expression profiles.
