Publication for SNPs to Target Genes

STARLinG citations


Using regulatory genomics data to interpret the function of disease variants and prioritise genes from expression studies

PMCID: 5850119
PMID: 29568492
DOI: 10.5256/f1000research.14748.r30355

[…] ncer elements across a large panel of tissues and cell types can then be calculated to identify significant promoter - enhancer pairs. In turn, we will use these correlations to map distal regulatory SNPs to target genes.Let's read in the enhancer - promoter correlation data: # uncomment the following line to download the file #download.file(" […]


Systems Genetic Validation of the SNP Metabolite Association in Rice Via Metabolite Pathway Based Phenome Wide Association Scans

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 4661230
PMID: 26640468
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2015.01027

[…] s analyzed in parallel using two methods. First, a pathway enrichment analysis was conducted to determine the related Upper Tier Metabolite Pathway (UTMP). Second, eQTL information was used to direct SNPs to target genes and enzymes. The identified UTMP pathway was then searched for targeted enzymes upstream of the target metabolite. The consistency of the enzyme level and downstream metabolite le […]
