Phenotype Regression Configuration¶
A phenotype regression configuration file is used when generating the phenotype browser’s database files for a given study or dataset. It determines which measures to construct regressions against. The format follows the general INI style. Regression configurations can be created as a separate file or embedded in a phenotype database’s own configuration file for ease of access.
[regression.age] instrument_name = common measure_name = age_at_assessment jitter = 0.1 display_name = age at assessment [regression.nonverbal_iq] instrument_name = common measure_name = nonverbal_iq jitter = 0.1 display_name = nonverbal iq
Each regression is configured by a section with a name such as
regression_name is a
user-selected name for the regression. The key-value pairs of a regression
section are as follows.
instrument_name = <pheno instrument name>
This is the name of the instrument to which the regressor (or exogenous/independent) measure belongs to. It can be left empty to indicate that the measure is present in all instruments.
measure_name = <pheno measure name>
This is the name of the regressor measure.
jitter = <jitter float value>
A float value that determines the amount of jitter to apply to points when drawing the regression plot. The default value is 0.1.
display_name = <pheno regression display name>
Determines the name of the regression’s column in the phenotype browser.
