Table 4 Quantitative Effect of the gene score (risk allele) on selected traits, expressed as the beta effect (Standard error)

From: Use of a gene score of multiple low-modest effect size variants can predict the risk of obesity better than the individual SNPs

Parameter β (SE) p-value
Weight (Kg) 0.069 (0.005) 0.465
Height (ft) 0.222 (0.005) 0.051
BMI (Kg/m2) 0.622 (0.013) 0.001
WC (cm) 0.441 (0.005) 1.2 × 10−3
HC (cm) 0.111 (0.005) 0.111
WHR 0.010 (0.339) 0.106
  1. The beta effect means the rise or fall in the selected trait per each risk allele increase. For example, for weight a beta effect of 0.069 means that with each risk allele increase, the body weight increases by 0.069Kg
