Dataset Description

Recent GWAS studies have made extensive use of large eQTL data sets to functionally annotate index SNPs. With a large number of association signals located outside coding regions there has been an intense search among sequence variants affecting gene expression at the transcriptional level. However, little progress has been made in mapping regulatory variants that affect protein levels at the translational or post-translational level. It is now possible to undertake a protein QTL scan for focused sets of e.g. oxidized proteins by mass spectrometry. We have established a collaboration with a longitudinal, family-based study in France, the Stanislas cohort, which comprises circa 1000 nuclear families (4,295 individuals) and has follow up data for 10 years (three visits). We have undertaken a pilot study in a focus set of 257 subjects from 79 families with the aim to integrate GWAS, transcriptomic and DNA methylation data with proteomic data on a set of 100 proteins measured in PBMCs. We have already generated GWAS data using Illumina's core-exome chip as well as DNA methylation ... (Show More)
