Has anyone done a trans-eQTL analysis using data from GTEX? Would it be feasible due to relatively lower sample numbers in GTEX compared to what is required for trans-eQTL data analysis? Thanks

Cis EQTL analysis is feasible with GTEX data-sets (I've performed it successfully with approximately 237 donors).

Trans-EQTL requires much larger sample sizes and lower p-values to classify significant EQTL's. I doubt it would be feasible.
