Polygenic Risk Score, Genetic Prediction, 1001 Genomes, Central Molecular Dogma, Arabidopsis thaliana


The most important scientific challenges connect to climate change. Prediction algorithms take an important role, including improving plant breeding according to new environmental conditions. Therefore, this project focuses on calculating human disease probability based on genotype information polygenic risk score. This project's main goal is to adapt these algorithms to plant data in functional software. The software can be used to bring new insights into plant breeding and thus uncover possible solutions to the climate crisis.
