To see a cis-trans plot with all eQTL peaks for a certain experiment,
click on the experiment name.
You can search with a keyword to find genes and gene ontology (GO) categories.
Select the examples
menu to see some example analysis with WormQTL 2.
Show all genes for which the eQTL profile correlates with that of the query gene above the set cut-off,
in the selected experiment.
Strongly correlating eQTL profiles could indicate that the genes are regulated by the same loci.
Show the eQTL profiles of genes with a LOD score above the threshold at the selected locus in the selected
A locus can be a marker, a gene name, gene id or a genomic position (i.e. 2:11095452).
WormQTL 2 is the C.elgans
workbench and database for eQTL analysis.
It allows easy access to the data of all published
genetical genomics experiments.
WormQLT2 was modelled after
(the arabidopsis eQTL resource).
A paper describing WormQTL2 was published in Database
WormQTL2: an interactive platform for systems genetics in Caenorhabditis elegans
An eQTL is a genetic locus that was shown to affect the expression of the current gene.
eQTLs are the result of combining genomics with genetics, in "genetical genomics"
