Consortium for Alzheimer's Sequence Analysis (CASA)

The Consortium for Alzheimer's Sequence Analysis (CASA), funded under the NIA grant UF1-AG047133, will analyze whole exome and whole genome sequence data generated from subjects with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and elderly normal controls within the Alzheimer's Disease Sequencing Project (ADSP). These data have been generated by the National Human Genome Institute Large-Scale Sequence Program. The goal of the planned analyses is to identify genes that have alleles that protect against or increase susceptibility to AD.
