We have experience in project design and execution for gene mutation (linkage) and modifier (association) identification. The team is has worked on projects involving patients and control subjects, extended ‘multi-incident’ families, as well as outbred and isolated communities (including religious or geographic isolates such as island populations). We have experience with most sequencing and genotyping technologies.
- Our partners include a worldwide network of neurologists including established collaborations with several National Institutes of Neurology.
- We offer support in study design and creative solutions.
- We offer Principle Investigators the support they need to secure competitive funding from appropriate agencies.
- Projects managed may include ethics (working with IRB, REB to develop protocols for informed participant consent), data management, storage and processing to enable trait mapping – from pedigree and sample collection to DNA extraction and subsequent genetic analysis.
Work is primarily performed as an academic collaboration but may be procured on a fee-for-service (cost recovery) basis.
