Study Description

This study utilized the well characterized collection of North American Caucasians with Parkinson's disease, and neurologically normal controls from the sample population which are banked in the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS Repository) collection. Two sub-studies are included, in sub-study NINDS-Genome-Wide Genotyping in Parkinson's Disease, genome-wide, single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotyping of these publicly available samples was originally done in 267 Parkinson's disease patients and 270 controls, and this has been extended to include genome wide genotyping in 939 Parkinson's disease cases and 802 controls; in sub-study NINDS-Exome Sequencing in Parkinson's Disease, genome wide exome DNA sequencing was done in 618 Parkinson's disease samples deposited in Coriell NINDS repository. The DNA comes from a mixture of blood, and from cell lines (lymphoblast cell lines) derived from blood. The GWAS data and exome sequencing data was generated and provided by the laboratory of Neurogenetics lead by Dr. Andrew Singleton, NIA, and Dr. John Hardy, a former chief at NIA, NIH.

The NINDS Parkinson's Disease Cohort study is utilized in the following dbGaP individual studies.
