Table 5 Traits with a significant overlap between eQTL and QTL (within and across RNA-Seq datasets analyses)

From: Comparing allele specific expression and local expression quantitative trait loci and the influence of gene expression on complex trait variation in cattle

  1. The traits in which QTL are significantly more likely to be eQTL according to chi-squared tests when comparing GWAS and gene expression results within RNA-Seq datasets analyses (p < 0.05). *The approximate correlation between QTL and eQTL for the traits annotated with stars were significant as well (p < 0.05)
