Study Description

This proof-of-concept study shows that single-cell RNA sequencing in ~25,000 peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) of 45 donors allows for the identification of cell type-specific cis expression quantitative trait loci effects (cis-eQTLs). Moreover, the significant top-eQTL effects show consistent allelic direction (94%) with previously published whole blood deepSAGE data. These cell type-specific eQTLs may give us additional insight into the downstream consequences of genetic risk factors for immune-mediated diseases.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
EGAD00001003459
Single cell transcriptomics of PBMCs of 47 donors from the Lifelines Deep cohort (general population, Northern part of the Netherlands). Cells of five or six different donors were pooled together in one sample pool, resulting in eight different sample pools. In total, 28.855 cells were captured and their transcriptomes were sequenced to an average depth of 74k. Genotype data was available for each donor, which allowed us to use the Demuxlet method that uses variable SNPs between the pooled ... (Show More)
