“ Integrating eQTL and GWAS to identify genes associated to complex traits".
Abstract: Many complex traits and diseases share a correlation at a phenotypic level. Such correlations can be attributed to shared environmental or genetic architectures. Quantifying the correlation in phenotypes that is due to genetics is of great interest in understanding the causal relationship between traits. Here I present new methods for estimation of local genetic variance/covariance and discuss their relationship with the recently proposed methods for gene expression prediction as a tool to integrate eQTL and GWAS to identify genes associated to complex traits.
