E-MTAB-3199 - Open chromatin in human pancreatic islets (FAIRE-seq) - Appendix to E-GEOD-17616
Last updated on 22 December 2014, released on 23 December 2014
An appendix to the published Gaulton et al. work (PMID: 20118932; E-GEOD-17616). In the original paper, the authors note that samples 1 and 2 are not as pure as the third sample. This appendix provides FAIRE-Seq data obtained from a purified islet sample to replace the problematic published data. The goal of the original experiment was to identify active regulatory DNA in human pancreatic islets. This was accomplished using high-throughput sequencing of genomic regions isolated using FAIRE from three purified pancreatic islet samples to identify sites of open chromatin.
