A functional SNP upstream of the ADRB2 gene is associated with COPD

PMCID: 5859892
PMID: 29588580
DOI: 10.2147/COPD.S151153

[…] ulations (data not shown). We further evaluated the effect of this SNP on ADRB2 expression in LCL from 726 HapMap3 individuals in GENe Expression VARiation ( The AA genotype of rs12654778 presented a significantly reduced expression of ADRB2, compared with the other genotypes AG or GG in most populations (CHB, Gujarati Indians in Houston, TX, US […]


Heritable components of the human fecal microbiome are associated with visceral fat

Genome Biol
PMCID: 5036307
PMID: 27666579
DOI: 10.1186/s13059-016-1052-7

[…] otic (MZ) and dizygotic (DZ) female twins from the TwinsUK cohort, as part of the MuTHER project []. We interrogated the candidate SNPs for eQTL results in adipose tissue (subcutaneous fat) using the Genevar software []. The functional impact of the candidate SNPs was also explored using GTEx results across multiple tissues, using GTEx Analysis Release v6 (dbGaP Accession phs000424.v6.p1) []. […]


Identification of genetic variants predictive of early onset pancreatic cancer through a population science analysis of functional genomic datasets

PMCID: 5302929
PMID: 27486767
DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.10924

[…] [] to confirm each SNP in relation to annotated protein-coding genes and/or non-coding RNA genes. We investigated expression quantitative trait loci (eQTL) associations for the significant SNPs using Genevar, a database and Java tool designed for data analysis of SNP-gene associations in eQTL studies integrating multiple datasets []. […]
