Real-time association test: [One selected gene/exon] - [Genome-wide SNPs]
For any selected gene of interest (transcript or exon expression, Expression A ), this test answers the question: is there any association between any SNPs included in Illumina HumanHap550 and Expression A ?
(1) SNPExpress takes HUGO gene symbols as inputs. (Figure 1)
(2) If SNPExpress finds the data for the gene, a probeset navigation tree is then shown. Simply select a transcript probe or an exon probe. (Figure 2)
(3) The "GWAS Now!" button will then be enabled. Simply click on this button to run this test. The results will then be showed with the WGAViewer software. (Figure 3).
Note: this procedure may take some time.
