A Statistical Framework for Joint eQTL Analysis in Multiple Tissues

Figure 4

Example of an eQTL with weak, yet consistent effects.

A. Boxplots of the PC-corrected expression levels from gene ASCC1 (Ensembl id ENSG00000138303) in all three cell types, color-coded by genotype class at SNP rs1678614. B. Forest plot of estimated standardized effect sizes of this eQTL. Note that none of the from the tissue-by-tissue analysis are significant at FDR = 0.05.
