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, disease models and data to be shared with the larger scientific research community.
According to Alison Yao, PhD, Program Director of the Division of Neuroscience (DN) at the NIA, the hope for ADSP FCG is to accelerate research and “to lead to a better understanding of disease biology and generate new potential therapeutics.”
