Schematic diagram of prioritizing SNPs from GWAS. 1,170 SNPs were associated with T2DM with P < 0.05 in both GWAS and 243 genes were located in vicinity of these SNPs. Out of these 243 genes, 115 were differentially expressed between diabetic and healthy tissues in different gene expression profiling studies.
