t2d.scores: Genetic risk scores for type 2 diabetes risk.

Description Usage Format Source


Risk score parameterised using GWAS meta-analysis results published by the DIAGRAM+ consortium (Voight et al. Nature Genetics 2011). The score is for risk of prevalent type 2 diabetes (T2D).




A data frame suitable for use with other functions in this package, see gtx.params.

The score is called T2D2010, and has coefficients in ln(odds) for T2D per coded allele.

In future releases, additional risk scores used in earlier papers may be added for historical interest (WHII and Lin papers).


For the publication by Voight et al. from which these data were extracted see http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/ng.609.
