B number: 
Principal applicant name: 
Susan Ring | University of Bristol (United Kingdom)
Prof Nic Timpson, Prof Caroline Relton and MRC Investigator, Dr Josine Min, Prof Tom Gaunt, Karen Ho
Title of project: 
ALSPAC - Enhancement of Transcriptomic Resources
Proposal summary: 

ALSPAC collected samples at the 24 year clinic to preserve RNA. This can be used to look at which genes are being expressed in blood. We are hoping to obtain money to analyse some of these samples by a process called RNA sequencing. This will allow us to see which genes are switched on in different people. The data generated will create a resource for molecular research.

Impact of research: 
Generation of Transcriptomics data to enhance the ALSPAC omics data sets.
