Is there any gene expression data available for the 1000 Genomes Project samples?

The most important available existing expression datasets involving 1000 Genomes individuals are probably the following:

RNAseq (mRNA & miRNA) on 465 individuals (CEU, TSI, GBR, FIN, YRI)

Pre-publication RNA-sequencing data from the Geuvadis project is available through

RNAseq on 60 CEU individual [1]

Expression arrays on about 800 HapMap 3 individuals with a lot of overlap with 1000g data [1,2]

RNAseq for 69 YRI individuals [3]
