Application Process for ADSP Sequencing Data

The NIA Genetics of Alzheimer’s Disease Data Storage Site (NIAGADS) provides access to genotypic and phenotypic data for the ADSP, as well as secondary analysis data, and data from NIA funded genetic and genomic studies. Additional phenotype data for ADSP will become available as the project progresses. Information about additional phenotype data and how to access will be posted at the ADSP website. A list of the data available can be found here. The application process begins with submission to dbGaP and the initial review for approval of data use is done by the Joint NIDA, NIAAA, NIA, and NIMH (JAAMH) Data Access Committee (DAC).
