Systems genetics: From GWAS to disease pathways

Biochimica Et Biophysica Acta
Marijke R van der SijdeJingyuan Fu


Most common diseases are complex, involving multiple genetic and environmental factors and their interactions. In the past decade, genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have successfully identified thousands of genetic variants underlying susceptibility to complex diseases. However, the results from these studies often do not provide evidence on how the variants affect downstream pathways and lead to the disease. Therefore, in the post-GWAS era the greatest challenge lies in combining GWAS findings with additional molecular data to functionally characterize the associations. The advances in various ~omics techniques have made it possible to investigate the effect of risk variants on intermediate molecular levels, such as gene expression, methylation, protein abundance or metabolite levels. As disease aetiology is complex, no single molecular analysis is expected to fully unravel the disease mechanism. Multiple molecular levels can interact and also show plasticity in different physiological conditions, cell types and disease stages. There is therefore a great need for new integrative approaches that can combine data from different molecular levels and can help construct the causal inference from genotype to phenotype.
