dcVar: a method for identifying common variants that modulate differential correlation structures in gene expression data

Front Genet
PMCID: 4609883
PMID: 26539209
DOI: 10.3389/fgene.2015.00312

[…] equired to validate these hypotheses. Nevertheless, the potential functional characterization of these variants and expression levels using available data demonstrates the added benefit of performing dcVar analysis alongside existing analyses. We note that other methods for computing genotype-specific differential correlation did not uncover the effects above ().Though we applied dcVar to an eQTL […]
