Genome-Wide Co-Expression Analysis in Multiple Tissues

Figure 3

Scatter plots showing pairs of trans-eQTL genes with significantly correlated expression profiles by genetic map location of peak of linkage.

Significantly correlated pairs of trans-eQTLs identified in a) fat, b) kidney, c) adrenal and d) left ventricle are plotted according to genetic map position of the peak of linkage. Colour coding is as in Figure 1. Over-representation of pairs of trans-eQTLs with nearby peaks of linkage among the significantly correlated set can be observed (in the red diagonal) in all four tissues.
