Effectively Identifying eQTLs from Multiple Tissues by Combining Mixed Model and Meta-analytic Approaches

Figure 3

The average number of eQTLs that the tissue-by-tissue approach, Meta-Tissue FE, and Meta-Tissue RE recover from three tissues generated from the liver tissue.

The liver tissue has 108 samples from which we simulate three tissues of 36 samples. X-axis indicates the number of tissues having effects out of three tissues. The original liver tissue has 389 eQTLs.
