Predictive Utility of Polygenic Risk Scores for Coronary Heart Disease in Three Major Racial and Ethnic Groups.
Because polygenic risk scores (PRSs) for coronary heart disease (CHD) are derived from mainly European ancestry (EA) cohorts, their validity in African ancestry (AA) and Hispanic ethnicity (HE)… Expand
Improving reporting standards for polygenic scores in risk prediction studies
The ClinGen Complex Disease Working Group, in a collaboration with the Polygenic Score (PGS) Catalog, have developed a novel PRS Reporting Statement (PRS-RS), updating previous standards to the current state of the field. Expand

- 15 October 2019
We tested the application of classification algorithms that ingest variant annotations along with phenotype information for predicting whether a variant will ultimately be clinically reported and returned to a patient. Expand
Improving reporting standards for polygenic scores in risk prediction studies.
Polygenic risk scores (PRSs), which often aggregate results from genome-wide association studies, can bridge the gap between initial discovery efforts and clinical applications for the estimation of… Expand

Generalizability of Polygenic Risk Scores for Breast Cancer in the Multiethnic eMERGE Study
Background: The majority of polygenic risk scores (PRS) for breast cancer have been developed and validated using cohorts of European ancestry (EA). Less is known about the generalizability of these… Expand
