We here describe "DeepWAS", a new approach that integrates these regulatory effect predictions of single variants into a multivariate GWAS setting.  ...  A specific class of deep learning-based methods allows for the prediction of regulatory effects per variant on several cell type-specific chromatin features.  ...  We would like to thank Richa Batra, Linda Krause, Christoph Orgis, Karolina Worf, Matthias Heinig and Martin Preusse for useful discussions on the approach.  ...

We introduce local collapsing by amino acid position for missense variants and use this approach to identify potential novel gain of function variants in PIEZO1, and interpret a position-specific association  ...  In addition to performing gene-based variant collapsing tests, we design and apply variant-category-specific kernel-based tests that integrate quantitative functional variant effect predictions for missense  ...  Deepwas: Multivariate genotype-phenotype associations by directly integrating regulatory 595 information using deep learning.
