Many thousands of genetic variants have been linked to a broad range of health-related outcomes. This information can be used to calculate genetic scores, referred to as polygenic scores, representing an individual’s risk or propensity for a given outcome. Polygenic scores are used extensively in research to understand the interplay of genetic and environmental factors influencing health and disease. Polygenic scores also have a great potential for informing personalised medicine, though further research and tools are required to facilitate the use of polygenic scores in the clinical setting.

GenoPred aims to resolve key polygenic scoring methodology research questions and develop easy-to-use and robust software tools for the implementation of current best practises.

GenoPred Pipeline

A key output of GenoPred is the GenoPred pipeline, a software pipeline implementing leading methodology for polygenic scoring.
