The ALSGene database will provide a comprehensive, unbiased and regularly updated field synopsis of genetic association studies performed in ALS. Once content creation is completed, one of its main features will consist of up-to-date meta-analyses for all eligible polymorphisms with sufficient data. For details on the background and methods behind ALSGene, see the Methods section. For a list of databases with a focus on Mendelian forms of ALS see the "ALS Mutation Databases" box on this page.
We encourage authors and readers to contact us to report errors in the presentation of study details, or to notify us of studies that have mistakenly been left out.
