LocusCompareR

1. Installation

LocusCompareR is an R package for visualization of GWAS-eQTL colocalization events.

Use the following commands to install LocusCompareR. If you don't have devtools, uncomment the first line to install it.

# install.packages("devtools")
devtools::install_github("boxiangliu/locuscomparer")

2. Example

To illustrate the use of locuscompare, we use the GWAS dataset from Nikpay et al. (2015) and the coronary artery eQTL dataset from GTEx v7 at the PHACTR1 locus:

library(locuscomparer)
gwas_fn = system.file('extdata','gwas.tsv', package = 'locuscomparer')
eqtl_fn = system.file('extdata','eqtl.tsv', package = 'locuscomparer')
locuscompare(in_fn1 = gwas_fn, in_fn2 = eqtl_fn, title1 = 'CAD GWAS', title2 = 'Coronary Artery eQTL')

The output from the main function is a figure like the following:

The labeled SNP is the lead SNP (in this case for both studies), and other SNPs are colored according to their LD $r^2$ with the lead SNP.

3. Using your own dataset:

The input to locuscompare::main() is a two-column tab-delimited text file with two columns:

  1. rsid
  2. pval

Here is an example file:

rsid	pval
rs62156064	0.564395
rs7562234	0.399642
rs11677377	0.34308
rs35076156	0.625237

You can download the example files below: GWAS and eQTL datasets.

Then run the following commands:

library(locuscomparer)
gwas_fn = 'path/to/gwas.tsv'
eqtl_fn = 'path/to/eqtl.tsv'
locuscompare(in_fn1 = gwas_fn, in_fn2 = eqtl_fn, title = 'GWAS', title2 = 'eQTL')

4. Documentations

To view documentation for each function, type ?[function name] in the R console.

LocusCompareR current export the following functions:

Data munging

  • assign_color: Assign color to each SNP according to LD.
  • get_lead_snp: Add a column of SNP labels to input data.frame.
  • get_position: Append two columns, chromosome (chr) and position (pos), to the input data.frame.

Plotting

  • locuscompare: Make a locuscompare plot.
  • make_combined_plot: Generated a combined plot with two locuszoom plots and a locuscompare plot.
  • make_locuszoom: Make a simple locuszoom plot.
  • make_scatterplot: Make a scatter plot (called the LocusCompare plot)

Data loading

  • read_metal" Read association summary statistics from file.
  • retrieve_LD: Retrive SNP pairwise LD from database.

About
