E-MTAB-5214 - RNA-seq from 53 human tissue samples from the Genotype-Tissue Expression (GTEx) Project
Released on 7 December 2016, last updated on 13 July 2017
The Genotype-Tissue Expression (GTEx) project aims to provide to the scientific community a resource with which to study human gene expression and regulation and its relationship to genetic variation. This project will collect and analyze multiple human tissues from donors who are also densely genotyped, to assess genetic variation within their genomes. By analyzing global RNA expression within individual tissues and treating the expression levels of genes as quantitative traits, variations in gene expression that are highly correlated with genetic variation can be identified as expression quantitative trait loci, or eQTLs. The present dataset contains RNA-seq from human reference/non-diseased tissues (thus, we have excluded K-562 cell line that is a chronic myelogenous leukemia cell line) from the Genotype-Tissue Expression (GTEx) Project (http://www.gtexportal.org/home/).
