- “Evaluating and improving heritability models using summary statistics” by Speed, Holmes & Balding appeared in Nature Genetics March 2020.
- The 4th edition of the Handbook of Statistical Genomics is available online and in print (Sept 2019). Thanks to new co-editors Ida Moltke and John Marioni, we made a great team, and thanks to our 36 sets of chapter authors.
- “Summary statistic analyses can mistake confounding bias for heritability” with co-authors John Holmes and Doug Speed, has appeared in Genetic Epidemiology (Sept 2019). We show that current summary statistic models for heritability don’t adjust for confounding. That’s because, although confounding affects the whole genome approximately equally, on a fine scale confounding effects are correlated with LD.
