ADSP Functional Genomics Consortium Launch

ADSP, the Alzheimer’s Disease Sequencing Project, has emerged as a powerful tool for genetics researchers in their work on genomics data analysis. This summer, NIA awarded six grants to fund projects that form the core of the ADSP Functional Genomics Consortium (FGC). This significant boost will support consortium researchers as they develop free and accessible tools, […]

Alzheimer’s Disease Variant Portal (ADVP): The Newest Curated Population-specific Alzheimer’s Disease Genetics Resource

By Fernanda Ruiz, NOVA Research Company Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is a devastating disease that affects more than 6 million Americans, a number that is projected to increase considerably in the near future. Scientists looking for the causes of AD use different approaches, including genomic studies like genome-wide association studies (GWAS), that detect associations between genetic […]
