  • Number of cis-eQTL associations in yeast found by the method introduced in this article (qpgraph) and by a marginal test of independence. Different columns correspond to different cutoffs (conservative, liberal) employed by qpgraph to select eQTLs, and different distances (500 bp and 10 kb) to the gene TSS.
