To understand the genetic basis of ALS and to ultimately find a cure for this devastating, fatal neuromuscular disease, Project MinE aims to analyse the DNA of at least 15,000 ALS patients and 7,500 controls. The resulting 22,500 DNA profiles will be compared.
Researchers meet and discuss their progress on data mining activities in Project MinE with the genomes so far.
Researchers from all over the world meet virtually to discuss their latest results, share ideas and start up more collaborations.
