LDpred (Vilhjalmsson et al. 2015; Modeling Linkage Disequilibrium Increases Accuracy of Polygenic Risk Scores) is a method for computing polygenic risk scores from summary association statistics while accounting for LD between markers. The method infers the posterior mean causal effect size of each marker using a non-infinitesimal prior distribution on effect sizes and LD information from an external reference panel.
