Muscle SATellite cell study (MSAT)

Skeletal muscle fiber type distribution has implications for human health, muscle function and performance. This knowledge has been gathered using labor-intensive and costly methodology that limited these studies. This data was used to present a new method based on muscle tissue RNA sequencing data to estimate the distribution of skeletal muscle fiber types from frozen human samples, allowing for larger number of individuals to be tested in a cost and labor efficient way. Muscle biopsies were taken from the vastus lateralis muscle of 39 Swedish male subjects. Samples were sequenced on the NextSeq® 500/550 (Illumina).
