Study Description

Leveraging the miRNA transcriptome of 977 samples, the study aims to define the levels of miRNA and isomiR diversity across individuals and populations, explore the genetic sources of miRNA expression variability and miRNA-environment interactions, evaluate the effects of immune challenges upon miRNA and isomiR expression dynamics, and quantify the relative impact of transcription and miRNA-mediated degradation on gene expression variability.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
The dataset includes raw RNA-seq data (fastq files) for miRNAs of monocytes before and after 6-hour exposure to four different immune stimuli, measured in 200 African- and European-descent healthy donors from Belgium. The stimuli include ligands for TLR4 (LPS), TLR1/2 (Pam3CSK4) and TLR7/8 (R848) and to a human seasonal influenza A virus (IAV).
