August BlackburnHarald H H Göring

Abstract

Only few systematic studies on the contribution of copy number variation to gene expression variation have been published to date. Here we identify effects of copy number variable regions (CNVRs) on nearby gene expression by investigating 909 CNVRs and expression levels of 12059 nearby ...read more

Expression Quantitative Trait Loci Analysis

Expression Quantitative Trait Loci (eQTL) analysis is the identification of specific or groups of genetic variants that affect gene expression levels within the cell. Discover the latest research on Expression Quantitative Trait Loci Analysis here.

Autoimmune Diseases

Autoimmune diseases occur as a result of an attack by the immune system on the body’s own tissues resulting in damage and dysfunction. There are different types of autoimmune diseases, in which there is a complex and unknown interaction between genetics and the environment. Discover the latest research on autoimmune diseases here.

Copy Number Variation

Copy number variation refers to alterations in the number of gene copies or DNA sequences. It can be a duplication, amplification, or a deletion event. Here is the latest research.
