The PDGene database provides a comprehensive, unbiased and regularly updated field synopsis of genetic association studies performed in Parkinsonís disease. In addition, hundreds of up-to-date meta-analyses are available for all eligible polymorphisms with sufficient data. For details on the background and methods behind PDGene, see the Methods section and/or our recent publication. For a list of databases with a focus on Mendelian forms of PD see the "Related links" box on this page.
Note that we are currently in the process of uploading all data from our recent publication not available online on PDGene yet (this message will be removed upon completion of the update).
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.
