Genome-wide genotyping data and exome sequencing of 100 European-descent and 100 African-descent Belgians used in the EGAS00001001895 study

EGAD00001002714 Illumina HiSeq 2000 970

Dataset Description

We recruited 100 healthy, male donors of self-reported European descent (EUB) and 100 of self-reported African descent (AFB) (Ghent, Belgium). For each participant, peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) were isolated from whole blood on Ficoll-Paque density gradients. Monocytes were then positively selected with magnetic CD14 microbeads and exposed for 6 hours to different ligands activating TLR4 (LPS), TLR1/2 (Pam3CSK4), TLR7/8 (R848) and to a human seasonal influenza A virus (IAV). High-quality RNA was obtained from unstimulated and stimulated monocytes for 970 of the 1000 samples (200 x 5 conditions), and was sequenced on an Illumina HiSeq2000. On average, 34 million 101-bp single-end reads were obtained per sample.
