These data are derived from iterative data collection and analysis partly reported in three primary publications (Gibbs et al., 2010, PMID: 20485568, Hernandez et al. 2011, PMID: 21216877, Hernandez et al. 2012, PMID: 22433082). This study includes an assessment of common genetic variability across the genome, chip based gene expression analysis and array based methylation analysis, across a series of 150 subjects from whom we had cerebellum, frontal cortex, pons, and temporal cortex tissue (600 tissue samples). In each tissue we assessed 27,578 DNA methylation sites and the expression level of 22,184 genes. This work was then expanded to include assessment of 232 additional subjects and two tissues (cerebellum and frontal cortex) for whom we collected genotype, RNA expression and DNA methylation data.
