Recently, Penn Medicine News wrote a press release describing the new NIAGADS Data Sharing Service (DSS), which will distribute genomic data to qualified investigators.  Initially, whole-genome sequence data will be available for 5,000 subjects, with more data to be released within a year.

“Genetic findings for Alzheimer’s disease are critical for identifying targets for therapeutic development,” Li-San Wang, co-director of PNGC, said. “Making these data available is particularly important since there is currently no treatment available that prevents or alters the course of this common and devastating disease.”
