Multivariate analysis of regulatory SNPs: empowering personal genomics by considering cis-epistasis and heterogeneity.

Turner SD, Bush WS,. Understanding how genetic variants impact the regulation and expression of genes is important for forging mechanistic links between variants and phenotypes in personal genomics studies. In this work, we investigate statistical interactions among variants that alter gene expression and identify 79 genes showing highly significant interaction effects consistent with genetic heterogeneity.
