The mitochondria chromosome is not included in the analyzed SNPs, only sex chromosome and autosomes.

Thanks for your comment! We have included some mitochondria markders in BDgene and will continuely collect related data. Pathway-based analysis for GWAS is based on the mapping from SNP to gene and further to gene set from MsigDB. By now, the mitochondria markers can not directly mapped to defined gene set. As the upgrade of gene set, we may build a seperate gene set for mitochondria markers and include them for PBA.
