Score Details

Score Construction
PGS Name cGRS_Glioma
Development Method
Name Pruning and Thresholding (P+T)
Parameters GWAS significant and r2 < 0.2. PGS levels were computed as product(dosage*weight/expected risk effect), where the expected risk effect for each variant was calculated based on the risk allele frequence (f) and risk allele weight (OR) as f^2*OR^2 + 2f(1-f)OR + (1-f)^2.
Original Genome Build NR
Number of Variants 19
Effect Weight Type Odds Ratio over expected risk

Performance Metrics

Disclaimer: The performance metrics are displayed as reported by the source studies. It is important to note that metrics are not necessarily comparable with each other. For example, metrics depend on the sample characteristics (described by the PGS Catalog Sample Set [PSS] ID), phenotyping, and statistical modelling. Please refer to the source publication for additional guidance on performance.
