Regional Association plots are only provided for those probes that pass both the SMR (p-value < 8.4e-06) and the HEIDI (p-value ≥ 0.05) test.The upper plot of the figure shows the p-value for SNPs from the latest GWAS for the given trait (brown dots). The diamonds represent the p-values of probes from the SMR analysis. Highlighted in red is the probe(s) of interest that passed the SMR and HEIDI tests. The lower plot of the figure shows the eQTL p-values of SNPs from the Westra study for the probe of interest.

Data downloaded from:

Summary-based-results Mendelian Randomization (SMR) is a method that applies the principles of mendelian randomization to identify genes whose expression levels are associated with a complex trait or disease because of pleitropy using summary data from GWAS and eQTL studies (Zhu et al. 2016, Nature Genetics). This method can be used to prioritize genes at the GWAS loci for follow-up functional studies. The method has been implemented in a user-friendly software tool which is freely available at
