Phenome-wide association study and prediction of two-years mortality - Returned datasets


Several epidemiological studies have examined the association between risk factors and overall mortality. Most of these studies, however, focus on a risk factor at a time. The UK Biobank represented a unique opportunity for an unbiased comprehensive assessment of risk factors for short-term mortality in the general population.

This research project aimed to investigate the association between a variety of exposures assessed in the UK Biobank and two-years mortality, and further to build and validate a risk score for prediction of two-years mortality using data mining techniques.
