Whole-genome transcriptomic profiling: A resource for the discovery of expression QTLs associated with common disease

Description

Its main aim is to annotate regulatory elements across the human genome and identify cis and trans acting eQTL that are specifically associated with expression phenotypes in lymphoblastoid cell lines (LCLs) and subcutaneous abdominal fat tissues and test them as candidate polymorphisms for association with obesity-related phenotypes in a series of large scale genetic association studies.
