GenoSkyline is a principled framework to predict tissue-specific functional regions through integrating high-throughput epigenomic annotations. Integrative analysis of GenoSkyline annotations with GWAS summary statistics could systematically identify biologically relevant tissue types and provide novel insights into the genetic basis of human complex traits.

GenoSkyline-Plus is a comprehensive update of GenoSkyline that incorporates more annotation data into the framework and extends to 127 integrated annotation tracks covering a spectrum of human tissue and cell types. Pre-calculated hg19 GenoSkyline-Plus scores are freely available. Annotation tracks can be visualized on UCSC genome browser. BED files for all 127 GenoSkyline-Plus tracks are now available for download.

Qiongshi Lu is an Assistant Professor of Biostatistics at University of Wisconsin-Madison. His research focuses on integrative genomic functional annotations and their applications in statistical genetics. More specifically, he is interested in utilizing functional annotation to enhance the performance of GWAS signal prioritization and functional variant fine-mapping.
Ryan Powles is a doctoral student in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics Program at Yale University. He is interested in the use of statistical methods to effectively characterize genetic variation through functional genomics data. He hopes to apply these techniques in a variety of contexts across the non-coding regions of the human genome.
