MOTIVATION Improvement of sequencing technologies and data processing pipelines is rapidly providing sequencing data, with associated high-level features, of many individual genomes in multiple biological and clinical conditions. They allow for data-driven genomic, transcriptomic and epigenomic characterizations, but require state-of-the-art 'big data'(More)
In this paper, we reconstructed the medical history of frontotemporal dementia (FTD) by reviewing the literature and analyzing papers with the highest impact through citation index. Several research studies and groups involved in FTD have been reviewed. An increasing amount of knowledge has been made available in the last 20 years through a large number of(More)
Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) is the second most prevalent form of early onset dementia after Alzheimer's disease (AD). We performed a case-control association study in an Italian FTD cohort (n = 530) followed by the novel single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs)-to-genes approach and functional annotation analysis. We identified 2 novel potential loci for(More)
