is an integrated database for interpreting a list of SNPs or Genes in the context of the ternary relations of Genotype-Expression-Phenotype
using a comprehensive collection of GWAS (genotype-phenotype) and eQTL (genotype-expression) data.
The analytic procedure in GEPdb is bidirectional, where SNPs are linked to genes via tissue/study-specific eQTL data or vice versa. The list of SNPs can be expanded by linkage disequilibrium (LD).
The typical procedure of using GEPdb is 1) starting from a list of SNPs (G>E>P mode), genes (P>E>G mode) or both (G:E mode), 2) expand SNPs by LD (optional), 3) establish linkage between SNPs and genes using the selected eQTL dataset(s),
and 4) construct and visualize the resulting GEP association network.
