  1. cis sQTLs: significant SNPs within ±1 Mb of the exon, associated with the variation in its inclusion ratio and also associated with the variations in the excision of an adjacent intron at the same significance level. Where the FDR threshold was approximated to 0.01 by combining FDR thresholds used in exon (FDR < 0.1) and intron (FDR < 0.1) analyses. cis eeQTLs: significant (FDR < 0.01) SNPs within ±1 Mb of the exon, associated with the variation in its abundance. cis geQTLs: significant (FDR < 0.01) SNPs within ±1 Mb of the gene associated with the variation in its abundance
