Study Description

Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) are instrumental in identifying loci with an impact on human traits and disease. Typically, however, most GWAS information is considered redundant as it is based on neighboring single-nucleotide variants (SNVs) in strong linkage disequilibrium (LD). In this context, besides the most significant hit (lead SNV) in every trait- or disease-associated locus, the rest of GWAS hits are often marginally reported, examined, or exploited. To interrogate the value of integrating the information provided by the full set of GWAS hits and fine-mapping haplotypes containing these SNVs, here we focused on a locus repeatedly associated with traits of the cardiac electrical conduction system and arrhythmia (SCN5A-SCN10A). We found that the same SNV can exhibit differing associations depending on haplotype. Thus, these analyses provide corroborative evidence that assuming redundancy among neighboring GWAS hits has the risk of missing critical disease-risk associations.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
EGAD00001006916
This dataset contains: 1) Raw FASTQ and BAM files for short reads. Here, DNA libraries were prepared using Nextera Rapid Capture Custom Enrichment kit (Illumina) and paired-end sequenced on a HiSeq2500 (Illumina). 2) Raw FASTQ and BAM files for long reads. Here, DNA libraries were prepared using 1D DNA ligation Sequencing Kit (SQK-LSK109, Oxford Nanopore) and single-end sequenced on a MinION device (Oxford Nanopore).
