Caribbean Hispanic AD Study: Results from a linkage genome scan in standard linkage format. Diagnosis is "possible and probable" AD by the NINDS-ADRDA criteria. The genetic map is based on the Marshfield genetic map which was converted to recombination fractions using the Haldane map function.
NIAGADS staff is collecting Genomic Data Sharing (GDS) documentation for this dataset. Until we know how the study's cohort's Institutional Review Board wants the data to be shared, the data cannot be distributed. Information about GDS is available at https://osp.od.nih.gov/scientific-sharing/genomic-data-sharing/. If you have questions about GDS, you may contact Dr. Marilyn Miller, email@example.com. In the meantime, you may still submit a request for this dataset, but it will not be distributed until GDS documentation is complete.
