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). ...

The 100 European-descent (EUB) and 100 African-descent (AFB) Belgians studied were genotyped for a total of 4,301,332 SNPs on the Illumina HumanOmni5-Quad BeadChips. Whole-exome sequencing was carried out for the same 200 individuals with the Nextera Rapid Capture Expanded Exome kit, on the Illumina HiSeq 2000 platform, with 100-bp paired-end reads. This kit delivers 62 Mb of genomic content per individual, including exons, untranslated regions (UTR), and microRNAs. Omni5 and exome datasets ... (Show More)
