[…] additional covariates, we tested for independence of our 14 associated snps from the two snps (rs3825942 and rs1048661) of the original published locus. regional association plots were created using locuszoom version 1.1 (ref. ). statistical analysis for quality control, χ2 test of association, logistic regression for adjustment of p values and multi-dimensional scaling for population […]
