Core--Genomics/Bioinformatics--Alzheimer's disease and autism  

This grant supports a genomics and bioinformatics core at Columbia University's National Center for the Multiscale Analysis of Genomic and Cellular Networks (MAGNet). This core will work to identify novel candidate genes for Alzheimer's disease and autism spectrum disorders (ASD) by genotyping large, family-based DNA sample collections and using computational and statistical methods to allow identification of disease relevant genetic variants.
