eQTL.df.example: eQTL data

Description Usage Format

Description

A dataset containing eQTL data

Usage

1

Format

Dataframe, one row per SNP, with 5 columns

SNP.Id

Variant ID (such as dbSNP ID "rs..."). Data type: character Note: naming scheme must be the same as what is used in the GWAS.df to ensure proper matching.

Gene.Symbol

Gene symbol to which the eQTL expression data refers. Data type: character Note: gene symbol must match entries in Genes.df to ensure proper matching.

P.value

P-value for the SNP from eQTL analysis. Data type: numeric

NES

Normalized effect size for the SNP from eQTL analysis. Data type: numeric Note: Per GTEx, this is defined as the slope of the linear regression, and is computed as the effect of the alternative allele relative to the reference allele in the human genome reference.

Tissue

Tissue type to which the eQTL p-value/NES refer. Data type: character Note: eQTL.df can contain multiple tissue types.
