Chromatin interactions (using Hi-C) and functional (using eQTL) data were used to identify long-range regulatory associations involving >20,000 GWAS variants and their target genes (i.e. eGenes) in >1,350 phenotypes in the GWAS Catalog. Using convex biclustering, we segregated phenotypes based on the eGenes they share, which implies a common underlying molecular mechanism. Understanding the roles the eGenes play has potential applications in understanding multimorbidities and drug repurposing.
