GTEx | The Genotype-Tissue Expression project


Provides a resource that allows investigations of the relationship among genetic variation, gene expression, and other molecular phenotypes in multiple human tissues. GTEx gives a unified view of genetic effects on gene expression across a broad range of tissue types, most of which have not been studied for expression quantitative trait locus (eQTLs) previously. This dataset was constructed on the basis of a collection of 900 donors.
