[…] determine the levels and potential tissue-specificity for Drosophila homologs of candidate susceptibility genes from human GWAS. Similar analyses can be readily performed using the publicly available Drosophila Gene Expression Tool (DGET, http://fgr.hms.harvard.edu/dget). We initially focused on nervous system traits, and found that 77% of fly homologs for human neurological disorder susceptibilit […]
