DIVAN: accurate identification of non-coding disease-specific risk variants using multi-omics profiles

Article English OPEN
Chen, Li; Jin, Peng; Qin, Zhaohui S.;

Understanding the link between non-coding sequence variants, identified in genome-wide association studies, and the pathophysiology of complex diseases remains challenging due to a lack of annotations in non-coding regions. To overcome this, we developed DIVAN, a novel ... View more
