Convergent genetic and expression data implicate immunity in Alzheimer's disease.

BACKGROUND Late-onset Alzheimer's disease (AD) is heritable with 20 genes showing genome-wide association in the International Genomics of Alzheimer's Project (IGAP). To identify the biology underlying the disease, we extended these genetic data in a pathway analysis. METHODS The ALIGATOR and GSEA algorithms were used in the IGAP data to identify… (More)
