Cheng et al. is out in PLoS Genetics!

Jun 15, 2020

Graduate student Wei Cheng is first author on a paper out in PLoS Genetics, which is coadvised by our collaborator and CCMB colleague Lorin Crawford. This study entitled Estimation of non-null SNP effect size distributions enables the detection of enriched genes underlying complex traits releases our gene-level association test, gene-epsilon (pronounced “genie”), a new approach for identifying statistical associations between sets of variants and quantitative traits. Congratulations to all the authors!
