Genetics of gene expression #GOGE -- recent paper in @PLoS

Cheung et al. PLoS Biology 2010

Polymorphic cis- and trans-regulation of human gene expression

"The majority of the regulators act in trans to the target (regulated) genes. Most of these trans-regulators were not known to play a role in gene expression regulation. The identification of these regulators enabled the characterization of polymorphic regulation of human gene expression at a resolution that was unattainable in the past."
