A Genome-Wide Gene Expression Signature of Environmental Geography in Leukocytes of Moroccan Amazighs

Figure 1

Geographic locations of sampled Amazighs groups in Morocco.

A total of 52 peripheral blood samples were collected: 20 urban samples from the town of Anza (Latitude: 29.367°, Longitude: −9.633°), 15 rural samples from the rural village of Sebt-Nabor (Latitude: 31.450°, Longitude: −9.650°), and 17 nomadic samples from the Sahara desert in eastern Morocco (Latitude: 31.809°, Longitude −4.603°). Subsets of these were used in the gene expression profiling, genotyping and methylation profiling as described in Table S5.
