Genomic Datasets

Target ALS has partnered with the New York Genome Center (NYGC), with funding from the ALS Association and Tow Foundation, to perform whole genome sequencing and multiple region whole tissue RNA sequencing analysis on all of our postmortem cases. This constantly growing raw genetic dataset is made available immediately to both academic and industry researchers without IP or authorship concerns, and is linked to the tissue samples and de-identified metadata.

Harmonized de-identified subject metadata is available in tandem with the raw data files. WGS and RNA-Seq raw data files can be requested via our Genetic Data Request Form. Detailed information about sample processing, QC and analysis are available for the WGS and RNA-Seq data.

Questions about available genetic data and the request process should be directed to
