Featured Comment Article

A brief comparison of polygenic risk scores and Mendelian randomisation

New Content Item

Mendelian randomisation and polygenic risk score analysis have become increasingly popular in the last decade due to the advent of large-scale genome-wide association studies. Each approach has valuable applications, some of which are overlapping, yet there are important differences which we describe here.
