I would like to use GTEx DNA & RNA-seq data. from the download section (https://www.gtexportal.org/home/datasets) it seems that both aligned .bam files and .vcf files are available, but it says to download the files through dbGAP, and on dbGAP I was able to find only SRA unaligned runs. I've already tried to contact them but they are not responding... Has anyone already dealt with these files before? Is it possible to download bams and vcfs or should I download SRA files and proceed with the painful process of alignment/mutation calling?
thank you very much.
