Application of candidate gene prioritization to QTL data

In this project we used gene function prediction and functional overrepresentation in QTL regions to prioritize QTL candidate genes for one or more traits of interest.
QTL regions often contain hundreds of genes. Statistical analysis of predicted gene functions enables to prioritize these large gene lists according to their likelihood of being causal for the variation in the trait of interest.
