Project MinE consortium of researchers and ALS foundations – meeting at the ALS/MND symposium 2016 in Dublin

Project MinE is a patient-­driven groundbreaking genetic ALS research.
The project is a worldwide collaboration between ALS centres and foundations.

Data sharing

Project MinE promotes broad, transparant and responsible data sharing.

Summary data

Summary data of Project MinE manuscripts will be published shortly after each publication.

Sharing data of controls

Project MinE participates in the Haplotype reference consortium , a large reference panel of human haplotypes.
