By doing RNA sequencing on 922 genotyped individuals of European descent, a Stanford University-led group got a peek at regulatory variants influencing gene expression in that population. As they describe online in Genome Research, the researchers brought the transcriptome and genetic variant data together to dig up regulatory variants for more than 10,000 genes.
