Early identification of coronary artery disease (CAD) is difficult using traditional risk factors and risk scores. While it is well known that CAD has substantial heritability and a polygenic architecture, genomic risk scores to help predict early CAD have yet to be shown especially effective. In this study, Inouye et al constructed a genomic risk score based on 1.7 million single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) to predict lifetime risk trajectories for CAD. The researchers developed built a new genomic risk score for CAD (called metaGRS) using a meta-analytic approach to combine large-scale, genome-wide, and targeted genetic association data. The score was based on 3 other genetic risk scores and included 1.7 million genetic variants. MORE
