Table 2 Results of eQTL and meQTL mapping using Matrix eQTL and coQTL discovery by GWAS. Numbers in parentheses for eQTLs and meQTLs refer to the number of unique genes (genes whose expression levels are associated with the QTL) and meCpGs (CpG sites whose methylation levels are associated with the QTL), respectively
