From: Accounting for multiple comparisons in a genome-wide association study (GWAS)

Method Significance Threshold Corresponding α level
Bonferroni 0.71 × 10-7 0.046
PRESTO 0.76 × 10-7 0.05

  1. The significance threshold for each method is shown (αGWAS = 0.05), as well as the corresponding genome-wide α level when compared with the PRESTO method. A strict Bonferroni significance threshold is also given.
