GRR, heterozygote/homozygote Genotype Relative Risk (GRR); B, number of blocks; SNPs/B, median number [Interquartile Range (IQR)] of SNPs within each block; r2, median [Interquartile Range (IQR)] pairwise r2 within each block. The described parameters are reported for blocks defined using thresholds of LD corresponding to r2 ≥ 0.6 and 0.8 respectively.
