Peter 't Hoen, Lude Franke, Bastiaan Heijmans and colleagues present a combined analysis of methylome and transcriptome data from a large collection of whole-blood samples to infer the downstream effects of disease-associated variants. They identify a large number of trait-associated SNPs influencing methylation of CpG sites in trans , providing insights into the downstream functional effects of many disease-associated variants.
