Checks: 1 1
This reproducible R Markdown analysis was created with workflowr (version 1.7.0). The Checks tab describes the reproducibility checks that were applied when the results were created. The Past versions tab lists the development history.
The R Markdown file has unstaged changes. To know which version of
the R Markdown file created these results, you’ll want to first commit
it to the Git repo. If you’re still working on the analysis, you can
ignore this warning. When you’re finished, you can run
wflow_publish to commit the R Markdown file and build the
Great! You are using Git for version control. Tracking code development and connecting the code version to the results is critical for reproducibility.
The results in this page were generated with repository version a81c981. See the Past versions tab to see a history of the changes made to the R Markdown and HTML files.
Note that you need to be careful to ensure that all relevant files for
the analysis have been committed to Git prior to generating the results
(you can use
wflow_git_commit). workflowr only checks the R Markdown
file, but you know if there are other scripts or data files that it
depends on. Below is the status of the Git repository when the results
Ignored files: Ignored: .DS_Store Ignored: .Rhistory Ignored: .Rproj.user/ Ignored: R/.DS_Store Unstaged changes: Modified: Build_software.R Modified: analysis/index.Rmd
Note that any generated files, e.g. HTML, png, CSS, etc., are not included in this status report because it is ok for generated content to have uncommitted changes.
These are the previous versions of the repository in which changes were
made to the R Markdown (
analysis/index.Rmd) and HTML
docs/index.html) files. If you’ve configured a remote Git
?wflow_git_remote), click on the hyperlinks
in the table below to view the files as they were in that past version.

Studying genetic associations with prognosis (e.g., survival, disability, subsequent disease events) or conditional on a phenotype (e.g., disease incidence) may be affected by selection bias - also termed index event bias or collider bias - whereby selection on disease status can induce associations between causes of incidence with prognosis.
The ‘Slope-Hunter’ approach is proposed for adjusting genetic associations for this bias. The approach is unbiased even when there is genetic correlation between incidence and prognosis.
Our approach uses advanced machine learning techniques such as unsupervised model-based clustering tailored to theoretical distributions of genetic effects on incidence and prognosis. The ‘Slope-Hunter’ method identifies and utilises the cluster of genetic variants only affecting incidence to estimate an unbiased adjustment factor for collider bias correction even in the presence genetic correlations (e.g., shared genetic pathways as typically observed for many traits including metabolites, cancer risk factors, psychiatric phenotype). The ‘Slope-Hunter’ approach assumes the identified cluster of variants only affecting incidence explains more variation in incidence than any other variant clusters.
