Hello, Shicheng.

Thank you for your interest in the Genome Browser.

Unfortunately the GTEx images are generated on demand then erased later. That is why the URL you provided:

No longer works. If you have only a finite number of genes you are interested in you can save the images locally.

We have also made an internal ticket request to create stable URLs to these GTEx images, although I cannot offer any timeline for when that would be avaiable.

I hope this is helpful. Please include in any replies to ensure visibility by the team. All messages sent to that address are archived on our public forum. If your question includes sensitive information, you may send it instead to
