Constrained Predictors

How to use the PhenotypeLibrary R package

Here we provide a set of phenotypes that can be used as predictors in prediction models or best practice research.

These phenotypes can be extracted from the PhenotypeLibrary R package. To install the R package run:


To extract the cohort definition for Alcoholism with an id of 1165, just run:


in general you can extract all the cohorts by running:

phenotypeDefinitions <- PhenotypeLibrary::getPlCohortDefinitionSet(1152:1215)
