A study on gene expression responses in the common carp to cooling stress using RNA-seq

This data is NERC-funded but not held by the EIDC. This data is archived on the ArrayExpress repository (EBI).

Dataset contains RNA-seq fastq data files for 83 common carp kidney samples as a function of time after cooling. The carp were held in two large aquarium tanks, one which remained throughout at 25°C (control) and the other that was cooled over 3 days to 11°C and held for 23 days. Replicate specimens from both tanks were then killed at up to 17 timepoints after cooling, kidney tissue was sampled, and transcript expression as a function of time after cooling determined by RNA-seq.

Provenance & quality

Common carp were exposed to 23 days of reduced water temperature, and at timed intervals kidney tissues from replicated specimens were excised and stored at -80°C. RNA-seq libraries were prepared from mRNAs isolated from each replicate, and sequenced using Illumina HiSeq4000.
