This national collaborative study is supported by the NIH Grant U10AA008401 from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA). In memory of Henri Begleiter and Theodore Reich, Principal and Co-Principal Investigators of COGA since its inception. We are indebted to their leadership in the establishment and nurturing of COGA, and acknowledge with great admiration their seminal scientific contributions to the field.
Bloomington: Genome Sequencer FLX (GS FLX)
Purdue: SOLiD Analyzer
National Cell Repository for Alzheimer Disease
NIA funded resource to make DNA and associated clinical material available to qualified researchers
Genome Wide Association Studies
DNA inherited in blocks, so not all 10 million SNPs have to be tested
Genotype several hundred thousand SNPs
Compare frequency of SNP alleles in two groups
Compare frequency of SNP genotypes in two groups
Increased number of copies in some samples
Data from 270 HapMap Samples on Chromosome 11
Genome Wide Association Study in Familial Parkinson Disease
CEPH families are all in the main cluster
