The project goal is to perform whole-genome sequencing (WGS) on Alzheimer’s disease (AD) cases to identify both common and uncommon variants associated with AD-related phenotypes (e.g., disease progression, survival time). All subjects were Caucasians with probable or possible having age at onset of 60 or above. Whole-genome sequencing was performed using Illumina HiSeqX.
