The differences between the models used for each of the studied genes may be explained with the conclusions of Micinski et al [12] and Monir and Zhu [21], who demonstrated that the inclusion or omission of the effect of each particular gene and polygenic effects, influence the results of production traits and only the models that include random effects are able to differentiate those changes.
The researcher also used the data to calculate a polygenic risk score for each patient, and combined this score with data on their high and moderate-risk variants to estimate each patient's overall risk of developing breast cancer.
incognita is polygenic and ruled by six gene loci, with incomplete dominance of the resistance allele and the presence of additive genetic effects.

Lesnov aims to present the first complete geological and petrological description of mafic-ultramafic massifs of the East Sakhalin ophiolite association, based on results of comprehensive study, including study by modern analytic methods, and to obtain a more complete substantiation of the earlier proposed model of polygenic formation of such massifs as the most important components of ophiolite associations.

There is substantial clinical variability between patients with GoF STAT3 mutations and also overlap in phenotype with other monogenic autoimmune disorders such as immunodysregulation polyendocrinopathy enteropathy X-linked (IPEX) syndrome (MIM: 304790) resulting from hemizygous loss-of-function forkhead box P3 (FOXP3) mutations, and also early-onset polygenic autoimmune disease.

The diversity in the processes in question is consistent with the polygenic and multifactorial nature of obesity and its comorbidities.
Of course, for some markers (notably those which are directly causal of monogenic traits, such as, say, a mutation for sickle cell anemia), as opposed to ones which are just linked and/or are part of complex polygenic traits, this isn't the case; a definite phenotype or condition can be confidently reported.
