Question about deconvolution analysis in PsychENCODE paper

Q:
I have a question about the deconvolution method used in the flagship PsychENCODE paper Comprehensive functional genomic resource and integrative model for the human brain. I would like to perform a similar analysis on my own bulk samples using the single cell expression profiles used in the paper, however it is unclear how these profiles are formed.

Specifically, supplementary file DER-23 lists the cell type fractions for 24 cell types. These coefficients presumably came from solving the following:

B = C * W

Where B is the marker gene by samples matrix, C is the marker gene by cell type matrix, and W is the appropriate weights matrix. How do I go about obtaining or reproducing the 24 cell type profiles? From what I can tell, these profiles were not released along with the other supplemental data sets.

If you could please answer my question or forward this email on the appropriate author(s), I would appreciate it.

A:
Sorry for the late reply. I think the profiles you want are on resource.psychencode.org
