Gene expression signatures of postnatal depression
This dataset consists of RNA sequencing gene expression data for 137 women with postnatal depression, which are also published in 2021 in the following publication: Mehta, D., Grewen, K., Pearson, B. et al. Genome-wide gene expression changes in postpartum depression point towards an altered immune landscape. Transl Psychiatry 11, 155 (2021). https://doi.org/10.1038/s41398-021-01270-5.
This dataset was collected by the University of North Carolina, USA, through a University of Queensland grant, obtained by Dr Divya Mehta while employed at UQ.
