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


Prof. Dr. Andreas Mayr kindly invited Yosuke to the Institute for Medical Biometry, Informatics and Epidemiology (IMBIE) at University of Bonn. Yosuke presented his recent works on inclusive polygenic score (iPGS) and multi-PRS. The presentation was followed by questions and discussion and dinner with colleagues at the institute.


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, Andy, for the kind invitation and for hosting my visit at Bonn.
