Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) preferentially affects distinct cell types and topographic regions in retina. To characterize the impact of AMD on gene expression changes across retinal cell types and regions, we generated both single-cell RNA-seq (scRNA-seq) and bulk RNA-seq data from macular and peripheral retina in postmortem human donors with and without AMD. The scRNA-seq data revealed 11 major cell types with many previously reported AMD risk genes showing substantial cell type and region specificity. Cell type proportional changes with advancing AMD stage were significant for Muller glia, rods, astrocytes, microglia and endothelium.
