Study Description

Genetic variants that influence transcriptional regulation in pancreatic islets play a major role in the susceptibility to type 2 diabetes (T2D). For many susceptibility loci, however, the mechanisms are unknown. To this end, we examined splicing and gene expression QTLs (sQTLs and eQTLs) in pancreatic islets from 399 human donors from publicly available cohorts and in-house data. Here we provide newly generated RNA-seq data and genotyping array data from 101 donors.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
Here we provide access to newly generated RNA-seq data for 101 human islet samples used to map genetic effects on gene expression and alternative splicing (eQTLs and sQTLs) in a total of 399 human islets. We also make publicly available genotyping array data for 128 human islets, including the fraction of 101 human islet samples with existing RNA-seq data.
