Check out the latest NIA blog post by Marilyn Miller which highlights how to access data generated by the Alzheimer’s Disease Sequencing Project (ADSP) and what new resources are available to researchers. The NIA has also made recent updates to the following pages NIA Alzheimer’s Disease Genetics Portfolio and Alzheimer’s Disease Sequencing Project Consortia. Special […]
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, […]
NIAGADS is pleased to announce the release of whole genome sequencing (WGS) data from 16,906 samples through the Data Sharing Service (DSS). The data release includes CRAMs, gVCFs, and project-level VCFs across all samples. The pVCF released here is provided as a preview to the formal ADSP quality control that will be released in a few months.
The Alzheimer’s Association and the National Institute on Aging have organized a virtual symposium on the Alzheimer’s genes and hereditary. The aim of the symposium is to discuss global studies in Alzheimer’s, advances in genetic pathways, and the implications of this research on clinical practice and public health around the globe. Virtual presentations for the […]
Recently, a new page called “How Researchers Can Tap into Data and Samples from Alzheimer’s Disease Research Centers” went live on the National Institute of Aging website. The page highlights how three different resources coordinate approaches in cataloging and sharing data from NIA-funded Alzheimer’s Disease Research Centers (ADRCs). The resources are the National Alzheimer’s Coordinating […]
Recently, Penn Medicine News wrote a press release describing the new NIAGADS Data Sharing Service (DSS), which will distribute genomic data to qualified investigators. Initially, whole-genome sequence data will be available for 5,000 subjects, with more data to be released within a year. “Genetic findings for Alzheimer’s disease are critical for identifying targets for therapeutic […]
