ADRC Project 1
Genetic Mapping of Late Onset AD Genes
Ellen Wijsman, Ph.D., Principal Investigator
This project seeks to identify new late onset AD loci using linkage analysis of late onset familial AD (LOFAD) families and age-of-onset as a quantitative trait phenotype related to AD. Aims are to identify the chromosomal regions containing LOFAD age-at-onset loci (Seattle LOFAD kindreds); to identify the chromosomal regions containing LOFAD age-at-onset loci (NIMH LOFAD kindreds); and to perform follow-up analysis of regions of interest detected in analysis of LOFAD families.
