Recent GWAS studies have made extensive use of large eQTL data sets to functionallyannotate index SNPs. With a large number of association signals located outside codingregions there has been an intense search among sequence variants affecting geneexpression at the transcriptional level. However, little progress has been made in mappingregulatory variants that affect protein levels at the translational or post-translational level. It isnow possible to undertake a protein QTL scan for focused sets of e.g. oxidized proteins bymass spectrometry. We have established a collaboration with a longitudinal, family-basedstudy in France, the Stanislas cohort, which comprises circa 1000 nuclear families (4,295individuals) and has follow up data for 10 years (three visits). We have undertaken a pilotstudy 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 proteinsmeasured in PBMCs. We have already generated GWAS data using Illumina's core-exomechip as well as DNA methylation profiles with the 450K array. We propose to use RNA seq togenerate transcriptomic data of the corresponding PBMCs.This data is part of a pre-publication release.
