[…] efficient approach that we developed (supplementary fig. )., using normalized cage peak expression values and genotypes (supplementary fig. ), we mapped promoter usage-qtls (puqtls) in cis using the qtltools software. topologically associating domains, (tads, supplementary fig. ) were used to define the tested cis-windows, assuming that proximal and distal regulatory elements acting […]

[…] onto organismal phenotypes. these kinds of data sets require powerful, fast and versatile methods able to discover molecular quantitative trait loci (molqtl). here we propose such a solution, qtltools, a modular framework that contains multiple new and well-established methods to prepare the data, to discover proximal and distal molqtls and, finally, to integrate them with gwas variants […]
