Hi everyone,

I am doing the PRS with PRSice, I set as follow

```
...
--lower 0 \
--interval 0.01 \
--upper 0.85 \
...
```

the result in the *.prsice* is as follow

```

I wonder why even though I have set the parameters as above the threshold jump is not as expected `0 - 0.01 - 0.02 - ... - 0.85`

. Does any know what happens with it?

Your help is really appreciated!

That is because we tried to optimize the speed of PRSice by ignoring thresholds that did not add any additional SNPs from previous thresholds.

For example, if my SNPs are SNP P-value SNP1 0.04 SNP2 0.045 SNP3 0.1 SNP4 0.2

Then with your threshold selection (0 - 0.85, step size of 0.01), we will only generate results for threshold

0.04, 0.05, 0.1 and 0.2, ignoring all thresholds in-between. You can savely duplicate the results for those other threshold if you want (e.g. results for threshold 0.05 to 0.09 should be identical as no new SNPs are added)
