Scientists mount genome research initiative to unlock Alzheimer’s genetic secrets – HealthCanal

Tue, Feb 7, 2012


The new national initiative to research the genetics of Alzheimer’s disease, announced Monday, could have a dramatic impact on the development of treatments for the disease, said Indiana University School of Medicine researchers involved in the project.

With funding from the Brin Wojcicki Foundation and the Alzheimer’s Association, scientists will sequence and study the entire genomes of more than 800 older adults currently participating in the Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative. The project will provide a listing of all 3 billion segments, called base pairs, of genetic code in each participant’s DNA…
