Web-Based, Participant-Driven Studies Yield Novel Genetic Associations for Common Traits

Figure 11

Association over time for two SNPs and two traits.

(A) Association between rs4481887 and asparagus anosmia, steadily increasing in certainty. (B) Association between rs6650382 and photic sneeze: a very promising initial result, but , the log odds ratio, regressed towards 0. Both traits were assessed in the same survey, so they had approximately the same number of responses at all points in time. Scores ( p-values) and regression coefficients are plotted using the genotype and phenotype data that was available at various points in time. The red line indicates our significance threshold of 8.4.
