Hi all,

eQTL is not my area of research, however I am interested to see if a particular SNP has a significant expression in the GTEX database.

I have queried this SNP rs4888622 (found on a paper on gene expression on the human brain). This is the result: (link: https://www.gtexportal.org/home/snp/rs4888622)

```

ENSG00000140873.11 ADAMTS18 16_77396849_T_C_b37 8.0897e-20 -1.09348 -1.1

ENSG00000140873.11 ADAMTS18 16_77396849_T_C_b37 3.60757e-8 -0.780061 -0.78

```

Now, the P-value is highly significant (top is `8.0897e-20`

) in many of this tissue, but what P-value threshold should I use? Should I use for a Bonferroni correction based on the number of SNPs and tissues there? How do I get these numbers?

Thank you in advance.

I also have this question, so what the p value should be used when consider the eQTL?
