Data from: Quantitative trait transcripts for nicotine resistance in Drosophila melanogaster

Gisele Passador-Gurgel, Wen-Ping Hsieh, Priscilla Hunt, Nigel Deighton & Greg Gibson
Although most genetic association studies are performed with the intention of detecting nucleotide polymorphisms that are correlated with a complex trait, transcript abundance should also be expected to associate with diseases or phenotypes. We performed a scan for such quantitative trait transcripts in adult female heads of the fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster) that might explain variation for nicotine resistance. The strongest association was seen for abundance of ornithine aminotransferase transcripts, implicating detoxification and neurotransmitter biosynthesis...
