Genotypic variability based association identifies novel non additive loci DHCR7 and IRF4 in sero negative rheumatoid arthritis

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5509675
PMID: 28706201
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-05447-1

[…] ANNOVAR was used to annotate the identified vGWAS SNPs and to calculate their conservation scores. Enlight was used to generate plots of vGWAS regions (50 kilobases flanking the lead SNP) of interest. […]


Making sense of GWAS: using epigenomics and genome engineering to understand the functional relevance of SNPs in non coding regions of the human genome

PMCID: 4696349
PMID: 26719772
DOI: 10.1186/s13072-015-0050-4

[…] derived from the ENCODE and REMC databases). However, neither program has options for analyzing only the relevant cell types for the disease-associated SNPs. In contrast, FunciSNP [], GREGOR [], and Enlight [] allow users to add their specific epigenetic data from the cell type of interest (which may not be in the public databases), providing a better prioritization of the regulatory SNPs. Of not […]


Functional Annotation of Putative Regulatory Elements at Cancer Susceptibility Loci

Cancer Inform
PMCID: 4179605
PMID: 25288875
DOI: 10.4137/CIN.S13789

[…] s), generates a list of correlated variants with the input variants, and then annotates all listed variants with pre-loaded ENCODE, Roadmap, or expression data. Recently, a bioinformatics tool called Enlight (http://enlight.usc.edu/) was developed to help identify causal variants by taking regional plots from GWAS results and overlaying biofeatures such as epigenetic modification, DHS, and TFBS. O […]
