Thirteen institutions and life sciences companies have teamed up to launch the free repository that will offer access to allele frequency information from genomes and exomes.

Exome sequence data for nearly 9,300 individuals pointed to new and known risk genes for sporadic ALS, including genes contributing to innate immunity and autophagy.

The partners will build a new sequencing facility at Columbia to help uncover new drug targets for the drug-developer.
