Genetics Core

The Genetics Core is responsible for preparing genetic data that will be available for download soon and will begin data preparation for extracting planned and novel MRI and PET endophenotypes for use in whole genome association analyses. In addition to planned analyses (e.g., hippocampal atrophy) we plan to employ pattern recognition tools to extract novel phenotypic information.
