Expression quantitative trait locus mapping in human pancreatic islets of Langerhans

Dataset Description

The intersection of genome-wide association analyses with physiological and functional data indicates that variants regulating islet gene transcription influence type 2 diabetes (T2D) predisposition and glucose homeostasis. However, the specific genes through which these regulatory variants act remain poorly characterized. To identify such effector transcripts for T2D and glycemic traits, we generated expression quantitative trait locus (eQTL) data in 118 human islet samples using RNA-sequencing and high-density genotyping.
