eQTL Catalogue: a compendium of uniformly processed human expression and splicing QTLs

The eQTL Catalogue is a new project aimed at accelerating the functional interpretation of human GWAS studies and the annotation of common variants through a comprehensive collection of gene expression and transcript splicing QTLs. Public datasets are thus collected then processed with a uniform pipeline to remove analysis artefacts and quality controlled, before being made freely available to all. In this webinar we will describe the data and most importantly how to access it. Already, the results of the eQTL Catalogue can be accessed via bulk download, API access and browsed on the Open Targets Genetics platform.

Who is this course for?

This webinar is aimed at individuals who wish to learn more about the eQTL Catalogue. No prior knowledge of bioinformatics is required, but undergraduate level knowledge of biology would be useful.
