Question: Is there a data package containing complex RNA-Seq data?

Does anyone know if there is a good RNA-Seq data set that is reasonably large and has multiple factors included in its metadata?

For instance, the airway data set mentioned here, , is nicely formatted for what I hope to do, but the coldata is pretty simple:

          SampleName     cell      dex    albut        Run avgLength Experiment    Sample    BioSample
             <factor> <factor> <factor> <factor>   <factor> <integer>   <factor>  <factor>     <factor>

I'm looking for something like this that has more factors to consider.  In this case it's mostly cell and dex, but I would like there to be more factors.  For instance, infection, tissue type, sex, batch#, time point, etc.  Does anyone have any ideas about a good data set on bioconductor?  Thanks very much!

have a look at TCGA database. You can access data by multiple modalities. One of these is based on curatedTCGAData package.

For example:


# Downolad "RNASeqGene" BRCA cancer data

BRCA_TCGA <- curatedTCGAData(diseaseCode = "BRCA", 

                                           assays = c("RNASeqGene"), 
                                  = FALSE)


The result is a MultiAssayExperiment class with a large number of data and  coldata.
