Understanding how non-coding genomic polymorphisms affect gene expression

Mol Psychiatry. 2016 Apr;21(4):448-9. doi: 10.1038/mp.2015.226. Epub 2016 Jan 26.


The NIH Common Fund GTEx project is designed to serve as a data and post-mortem tissue resource to the research community. The project is testing the role of genomic variation in altering gene expression across a wide array of tissues in a large number of human post-mortem donors. Both data and tissue samples are available to the research community for additional studies.
