We performed the following sets of analysis and provided the results as a resource.

  • HLA frequency in UK Biobank
  • The ABO blood type frequency in UK Biobank
  • Polygenic prediction of biomarkers and blood measurements
  • PRS_PheWAS: Application of blood measurement PRSs for disease risk prediction
