Both eQTL mapping and chromatin interaction mapping can identify the connections between regulatory elements and genes. Including these types of data in a genome-wide association study allows the researcher to assign SNPs to the gene it affects, rather than the nearest gene. In my work I assess how including these data types affects the results and interpretation of a GWAS study and whether it matters from which tissue the eQTL and Hi-C data were obtained.
