Statistical methods to detect pleiotropy in human complex traits

2017
Open Biol
PMCID: 5717338
PMID: 29093210
DOI: 10.1098/rsob.170125

[…] ate LMM analysis (see §2.6) []. MultiMeta generalizes single-trait inverse variance weighted meta-analysis to allow each variant to have a vector of effect estimates (one for each trait included).The Multi-Trait Analysis of GWAS (MTAG) tool takes a slightly different approach to the above-mentioned methods: in a generalization of inverse variance weighted meta-analysis, it incorporates effect esti […]

[…] t in more robust and generalizable estimation. Besides the methods discussed above, we have also compared the performance of proposed joint models with a recently developed multi-trait analysis tool (MTAG []). Following the Polygenic Prediction section in their bioRxiv preprint (page 8), we first applied MTAG to GWAS summary statistics to get the multi-trait adjusted p values and effect sizes and […]
