Transcriptomics of human olfactory mucosa

Dataset Description

The olfactory gene repertoire is largely species-specific, shaped by the nature and necessity
of chemosensory information for survival in each species' niche. We are intrigued by this
interspecific variation and started to investigate the olfactory transcriptome in primates for
evidence of selection at the level of receptor gene choice. Having collected this data from
two primates, we now wish to extend the analysis to humans.
