Improving polygenic risk scores

Existing genome-wide association studies have been predominantly conducted in individuals of European descent. In turn, this has limited the transferability […]

Computational Genetics: A Massive Step for Neuroscience

Complex brain disorders are highly heritable and largely polygenic. They arise from a complex combination of risk genes, found in […]
