How can i find a description for RPKM file downloaded from GTEXprtal? I don't know what is what in RPKM file. I need to extract the muscle-skeletal information. I already have a list of muscle-skeletal sample IDs from GTEx_Data_V6_Annotations_SampleAttributesDS.txt.

Thanks in advance

Can you give us the header of your file for instance? :)

The definition of RPKM can be found here and here to give you several ways to explain it. And to give you one of the important point of these links, __"RPKM is a unit of expression, not a method"__.
