Score Details

Score Construction
PGS Name PRScsx_T2D_LAT_EASweights
Development Method
Name PRS-CSx
Parameters The polygenicity value that maximized the PRS performance in the score development cohort was 1e-02. To calculate a polygenic risk score in any genotyped individual, please follow the next steps. First, use the ancestry-specific weights (PRScsx_T2D_LAT_EURweights, PRScsx_T2D_LAT_EASweights and PRScsx_T2D_LAT_LATweights) to calculate 3 separate scores for each genotyped individual. Second, standardize each score (mean of zero and standard deviation of 1) and combine the three of them to calculate a single score value: metascore=(zscoreEUR* 0.531117)+(zscoreEAS*0.5690198)+(zscoreLAT*0.1465538). Third, standardize the metascore before applying. Evaluation of each ancestry-specific score separately is not the intended use of this PRS-CSx polygenic score. Note that performance reported is based on the combination of the 3 ancestry-specific scores (PRScsx_T2D_LAT_EURweights,PRScsx_T2D_LAT_EASweights,PRScsx_T2D_LAT_LATweights) as explained above.

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.
