  • The GEO database was queried to identify microarray transcriptome datasets from sepsis whole blood samples of adults and children. Samples from patients aged 18–91 comprised the adult group and patients aged 5–11 comprised the children's group. The table above specifies each study GSE no., age category, age mean, age range, the number of male or female patients, the timing of sample acquisition in the sepsis course, the array GPL no., and the reference used to access the original study.
