Score Details

Score Construction
PGS Name Ldpred_CC_170223
Development Method
Name LDpred
Parameters To decrease the dimension of multicollinearity, SNPs were clumped with maximum LD between them set to r2=0.99. Then, 10 versions of PRSs were calculated by varying the fraction of causal SNPs on these values: Inf, 1, 0.3, 0.1, 0.03, 0.01, 0.003, 0.001, 0.0003 and 0.0001.

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.
