REGENT (Risk Estimation for Genetic and Environmental Traits) is an R package to calculate risks conferred by genetic factors and multi-level environmental factors. This is performed at a population level, with the option to also analyse individual-level data. REGENT incorporates variability in risk factors to calculate confidence intervals for risk estimates and to classify the population into different categories of risk based on significant differences from the baseline average member of the population.
