    I noticed that importing data from NCBI GEO into MeV does not go without trouble. Indeed, MeV has a loader for GEO GPL format files, but this loader seems to insist that a GEO file must first contain blocks of type ^PLATFORM and then blocks of type ^SAMPLE, while files downloaded from the NCBI usually have first a block ^DATABASE and a block ^SERIES. You can convince yourself by downloading ftp://ftp.ncbi.nih.gov/pub/geo/DATA/SOFT/by_series/GSE4861/
