In PLoS Genetics this week, DeCode Genetic’s Kari Stefansson and his colleagues report on both the cis and trans components of heritability within and across samples from 722 Icelandic family cohorts, which they characterized "using identity-by-descent estimates from long-range phased genome-wide SNP data and gene expression measurements for [about] 19,000 genes in blood and adipose tissue." The researchers at DeCode and their academic colleagues found that heritability at cis loci contributed largely to correlations they observed in gene expression measu
