Polygenic scores for height in admixed populations

Polygenic risk scores (PRS) use the results of genome-wide association studies (GWAS) to predict quantitative phenotypes or disease risk at an individual level. This provides a potential route to the use of genetic data in personalized medical care. …

What drives the reduced prediction accuracy of polygenic scores in non-European individuals?

Investigations on different methods for PRS calculation, the effects of different modelling and pruning approeches, and transferability of PRS across ancestries

LDpred2: Better, Faster, Stronger

Today we discussed the new version of LDpred: LDpred2 (preprint here). The preprint is short and technical and does not go through the trouble of explaining the models implemented in LDpred1 and LDpred2, since that has been described in great detail in the original publication.
