CRE Flagship project

Characterisation of the genetic basis of endothelial cell transcriptional and functional variation

Research groups from University of Leicester, University of Exeter, Cambridge University and Wellcome Sanger Institute have examined the role of endothelial cells in cardiovascular diseases. We have generated genotype, RNA-Seq, ATAC-Seq, CHIP-Seq and ECIS data on over 100 endothelial cell lines. These data have been processed and utilized in several analyses including QTL, co-localisation, eCAVIAR, and Summary-data based Mendelian Randomization (SMR).
