Positional distribution of sQTL SNPs. (a) The fraction of sQTL exons with significant SNPs within 300 bp of the splice sites as a function of the P value cutoffs for significant sQTLs. X-axis is the -log10(P value) for cutoffs to define significant sQTLs. Y-axis is the fraction of sQTL exons with any SNP called significant within 300 bp of the splice sites. (b) The boxplot of GLiMMPS P values for all SNPs around the 140 significant sQTLs (FDR ≤0.1), grouped into five categories based on the positions of SNPs with respect to the splice sites.
