DNAm and polygenic prediction of health and lifestyle factors. Proportion of phenotypic variance explained (R2) is plotted for eight traits: BMI; smoking; alcohol consumption (alcohol); education; total cholesterol (TC); HDL cholesterol (HDL); LDL with remnant cholesterol (LDL); and total:HDL cholesterol ratio (TC:HDL) based on each trait’s polygenic score (blue), DNA methylation-based score (green), and additive genetic + epigenetic score (orange)
