E-MTAB-1778 - RNA-seq of chicken RNA collected from a variety of tissues from one male and one female healthy 2-year-old red jungle fowls to study tissue and sex specific expression

Lack of comprehensive genome structural- and functional-annotation significantly prevents researchers from exploiting the full potential of the chicken genome model system for comparative and functional genomic studies. Comprehensive genome structural- and functional-annotation must be made easily accessible for the chicken genome sequence to reach its full potential to contribute to human health and well-being. To this end we collected a variety of tissues from 2 (1 male, 1 female) healthy 2-year-old red jungle fowls. We performed mRNA sequencing, small RNA sequencing, proteomics and proteogeomic mapping on each of these tissues to further elucidate tissue and sex specific expression and to improve upon current gene models. Results of small RNA sequencing have also been deposited at ArrayExpress under accession number E-MTAB-1826 ( https://www.ebi.ac.uk/arrayexpress/experiments/E-MTAB-1826/ ).
