Expression quantitative trait loci (eQTL) mapping is a widely used tool to study the genetics of gene expression. Confounding factors and the burden of multiple testing limit the ability to map distal trans eQTLs, which is important to understand downstream genetic effects on genes and pathways. We propose a two-stage linear mixed model that first learns local directed gene-regulatory networks to then condition on the expression levels of selected genes. We show that this covariate selection app  ...[more]
