Integration of genetics data into the NuAge Database and Biobank

Thanks to the partnership between the NuAge Database and Biobank, the Réseau québécois de recherche sur le vieillissement [Quebec Network for Research on Aging] (RQRV) and Drs. Mark Lathrop and Jiannis Ragoussis of McGill University, the genotypes of 1,276 NuAge Database and Biobank participants were analyzed using Affymetrix’s UK Biobank Axiom Array.

As a result, nearly 700,000 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP), as well as DNA and RNA samples, may be stored in the NuAge Database and Biobank to be available to researchers around the beginning of 2023.
