In the post-genome-wide association era, two-sample Mendelian Randomization (MR) methods have been applied to detect genetically-regulated risk factors for complex diseases. Two-sample MR considers single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with a putative exposure as instrumental variables (IVs) to assess the effect of the exposure on an outcome by leveraging two sets of summary statistics: IV-to-exposure and IV-to-outcome statistics from existing GWASs.
