Genotype and gene expression data from the GEUVADIS project


The GEUVADIS (Genetic European Variation in Disease) project (Lappalainen et al., 2013) measured the gene expression in Lymphoblastoid Cell Lines (LCLs) from a subset of individuals from the 1,000 Genomes Project (Auton et al., 2015), which measured the genotypes of individuals from multiple ethnicities. This data set contains genotype and gene expression data from 373 European individuals. The data are divided into 46 sets which each contain data from an expression quantitative trait locus (eQTL) and its associated genes.




An object of class "list" containing 46 eQTL-gene sets. Each element of the list is a matrix with the observations down the rows and the eQTL and genes across the columns. The first column in the matrix contains the genotype (eQTL) data and the remaining columns contain the gene expression data.
