pQTL Analysis: the latest tool in disease research

Four letters, four compounds – adenine (A), cytosine (C), guanine (G), and thymine (T) – are the basic code “letters” of our genetic material, DNA. As elegant as the genetic code is, it is also quite dense with information, leading to many questions about how genetic variations affect our biology or health. How can the answers be found amongst all that tightly packed information?
