Sex-specific genetic effects across biomarkers
Published in European Journal of Human Genetics, 2020
In this study led by Emily Flynn, we discovered a surprising sex-specificity in the genetics of testosterone. Yosuke performed the polygenic risk score (PRS) analysis and demonstrated that PRS models trained for each sex improve predictive accuracy.
We made the sex-specific polygenic risk score models publicly available.
