This project was supported by R01 NS37167, R01 NS036711, the Robert P. & Judith N. Goldberg Foundation, the Bumpus Foundation and the Harvard NeuroDiscovery Center. This study used samples from the NINDS Human Genetics Resource Center DNA and Cell Line Repository http://ccr.coriell.org/ninds, as well as clinical data.
DNA samples contributed by the Parkinson Institute - Istituti Clinici di Perfezionamento, Milan, Italy were from the "Human genetic bank of patients affected by PD and parkinsonisms", supported by Italian Telethon grant n. GTB07001 and by the "Fondazione Grigioni per il Morbo di Parkinson".
A portion of this research was conducted using the Linux Cluster for Genetic Analysis (LinGA-II) funded by the Robert Dawson Evans Endowment of the Department of Medicine at Boston University School of Medicine and Boston Medical Center.
Genotyping services were provided by the Center for Inherited Disease Research (CIDR). CIDR is fully funded through a federal contract from the National Institutes of Health to The Johns Hopkins University, contract number HHSN268200782096C. We particularly thank Drs. Kimberly Doheny and Elizabeth Pugh from CIDR and Mr. Justin Paschall from NCBI for their assistance.
The data used in this study is available at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/entrez?db=gap through dbGaP accession number: phs000126.v1.p1.
Funding support for the Mayo-Perlegen LEAPS (Linked Efforts to Accelerate Parkinson's Solutions) Collaboration Study was provided by the Michael J. Fox Foundation. Additional support was provided by the NIH grants ES10751 and NS33978. The datasets used for the analyses described in this manuscript were obtained from dbGaP found at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/projects/gap/cgi-bin/study.cgi?study_id=phs000048.v1.p1 through dbGaP study accession numbers phs000048. Data for the Mayo-Perlegen LEAPS Collaboration Study were provided by Demetrius M. Maraganore, MD on behalf of his collaborators at the Mayo Clinic and at Perlegen Sciences, Inc.
