dGTEx

Developmental Genotype Tissue Expression (dGTEx) Project

The Developmental Genotype-Tissue Expression (dGTEx) project is an NIH initiative to establish a resource of pediatric human tissues and comprehensive gene expression data. The project aims to collect tissues and build gene expression profiles from at least 120 postmortem pediatric donors to better understand the impact of genomic variation on complex traits and diseases.

dGTEx is an extension of the GTEx program, which the NIH launched in 2010 in response to a gap in the availability of high-quality human tissue samples and associated gene expression information. NDRI, along with our Laboratory Data Analysis Coordinating Center (LDACC) partners, were awarded a 5-year grant for dGTEx.
