  1. a Related SNPs are those in high linkage disequilibrium (rb > 0.8). These are: rs7460 (rs11996715); rs197381 (rs197383); rs13175906 (rs13186629); rs2330696 (rs6450839); rs6883386 (rs2161006, rs17404622); rs11587947 (rs11581746); rs12741800 (rs3811463); rs7291691 (rs9623117)
  2. b Some of these genes reflect actual location (SNP is within gene), others reflect literature associations
  3. c AGO genes are also known by EIF2C (i.e.AGO1 is also known by EIF2C1, etc.…)
  4. d N: Nucleus; C: Cytoplasm
  5. edbSNP lists this SNP’s position as LOC101927027; it is associated in the literature with PRKRA in the literature (falling within an accepted range of PRKRA)
  6. f These SNPs were either not evaluated for association with CRC due to unavailability of GWAS data
