Multi-ancestry and multi-phenotype integration for increasing power in polygenic prediction


Yosuke presented his recent works on inclusive polygenic score (iPGS) and multi-PRS at Systems Cardiology Group Research Seminar, Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, the University of Tokyo Hospital.


Learning objectives

  • Summarize recent methodological developments in polygenic score (PGS) research
  • Identify the caveats and limitations of existing approaches to PGS analysis of complex traits
  • Plan ways to improve the diversity and inclusion in study designs of human genetics studies
  • Plan ways to integrate multiple phenotypes in human genetics studies


Thank you, Dr. Seitaro Nomura, for invitation!
