NG00070 - ADC6 - Alzheimer Disease Center Dataset 6

Overview

The NIA ADC cohort included subjects ascertained and evaluated by the clinical and neuropathology cores of the 39 past and present NIA-funded Alzheimer's Disease Centers (ADC).  Data collection is coordinated by the National Alzheimer’s Coordinating Center (NACC).  NACC coordinates collection of phenotype data from the ADCs, cleans all data, coordinates implementation of definitions of AD cases and controls, and coordinates collection of samples. Biological specimens are collected, stored, and distributed by the National Cell Repository for Alzheimer’s Disease (NCRAD).

This GWAS dataset, ADC6, is the sixth set of ADC genotyped subjects used by the Alzheimer's Disease Genetics Consortium (ADGC) to identify genes associated with an increased risk of developing late-onset Alzheimer’s disease (LOAD). This data was first published in Kunkle et al. For deeper phenotypes, contact NACC.
