  • a Based on Li et al. (2006), Vinuela et al. (2010), Rockman et al. (2010), and Snoek et al. (2017); if the same gene had an eQTL on the same chromosome.

  • b Based on a Poisson distribution, where it was expected that 23.8% of the trans-eQTL were replicated. P-value indicates the likeliness of an overrepresentation of trans-eQTL in the miRIL population.
