I haven't any hands-on experience on this, and maybe/hopefully other ppl will respond as well, but apparently "Celcius" is able to handle such task.
copy/paste from their website:
# Retrieve sample data based on a GEO GSE identifier 
# We can retrieve data based on identifiers from other databases as well, such as Array Express and GEO. The identifiers may refer to single samples, or to groups of samples. Here we retrieve the GEO GSE6210 identifier. It refers to a group of 12 HG-U133A samples. 
GSE6210 = makeExprSet(celsius,id = c("GSE6210"), mapids = TRUE)

Is there any way that I can get the raw .CEL files using getGEO in R? I don't want to use the SOFT files, since I don't know what kind of normalization has been done on them.


PS: I have also checked the previous emails on this topic, and still can't make out what I need to do to get the files.
