The data and some results from this project are now freely available at http://www.braineac.org/


We study the regulation and alternative splicing of gene expression in multiple tissues from human brains.

This dataset currently comprises of 134 brains from individuals free of neurodegenerative disorders. Up to twelve brain regions were extracted per brain in parallel for mRNA quantification. DNA was also collected to enable genotyping and expression quantitative trait loci (eQTL) analysis. See Materials & Methods for further details and funding sources.
