E-GEOD-47728 - Global peripheral blood gene expression study and trans-eQTLs [HumanHT-12 V4.0]
Released on 8 June 2013, last updated on 3 June 2014
The objective of this analysis was to identify trans-eQTLs. Samples were collected from control participants of the Heart and Vascular Health (HVH) study that constitutes a group of population based case control studies of myocardial infarction (MI), stroke, venous thromboembolism (VTE), and atrial fibrillation (AF) conducted among 30-79 year old members of Group Health, a large integrated health care organization in Washington State. Total RNA was isolated from peripheral collected using PAXgene tubes and gene expression was profiled using the Illumina platform.
