Harvard Medical School, Massachusetts General Hospital, and the Harvard School of Public Health have collaborated with the Alzheimer Research Forum to develop AlzGene, a database of genetic association studies on Alzheimer’s disease. The database currently includes nearly 1,000 different studies. The resource only includes studies published in peer-reviewed journals available in English. It also provides meta-analyses on all genetic markers with published genotype data available in three or more independent samples.
SoftGenetics’ GeneMarker fragment analysis software now includes a new application for loss of heterozygosity analysis. GeneMarker directly processes electrophoretic separation data, performs sizing calculations, normalizes the data, detects areas of LOH, and provides researchers and clinicians with a patient report, the company said.
