LSRU CC Ventral Midbrain RNA-Seq (Dec19) TPM Log2

Download datasets and supplementary data files


RNA-seq on ventral midbrains, all animals ~ 3 months old.

Collaborative Cross: 1 male per strain for 32 CC strains.

C57BL/6J, A/J, and DBA/2J: The value is the mean of 12 samples (6 males + 6 females).

Experiment design

Single-end 75bp reads at a depth of about 30 million reads/sample. Processed by Yujuan Gui using both RPKM and TPM. Log2 of TPM+1 uploaded into GeneNetwork Dec 2019 by Arthur Centeno and Robert W. Williams.

Half of the C57BL/6J and A/J were sequenced in Genomics Core Facility - EMBL Heidelberg with single-end 80bp reads at a depth of about 30 million reads/sample.

About cases

CC mice were bred by Dr. Klaus Schughart at the HZI, Braunschweig, Germany.

Note: Only one of 8 - 10 male samples was processed for RNA-seq (unilateral dissection of VMB). Luxembourg team also has 8 - 10 female samples. 16 to 20 complete brain hemispheres fixed in paraformaldehyde for 48 hours and then transferred to PBS with sodium azide (now stored at 4 degree Celsius at BT1, 7 ave des Hauts-Fourneaux, L-4362 Esch-sur-Alzette).

C57BL/6J, A/J, and DBA/2J were bred by University of Luxembourg.
