Abstract: We utilized evidence for enhancer-promoter interactions from functional genomics data in order to build biological filters to narrow down the search space for two-way Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) interactions in Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) Genome Wide Association Studies (GWAS). This has led us to the identification of a reproducible statistically significant SNP pair associated with T2D. As more functional genomics data are being generated that can help identify potentially interacting enhancer-promoter pairs in larger collection of tissues/cells, this approach has implications for investigation of epistasis from GWAS in general.
