Database of Japanese Single Nucleotide Polymorphism for Geriatric Research (JG-SNP)

Owning Organization:
Contact: SAWABE Motoji
Resource classification: DNA, Protein, etc
Research area  (1): Human pathology
This database was created to study the roles of genetic
polymorphism in geriatric diseases. There was an autopsy
database, named ANATOMY, for clinico-pathological
research in our Dept. Pathology of Tokyo Metropolitan
Geriatric Medical Center (TMGMC). Together with genetic
polymorphism (SNP) data of the individual autopsy cases,
ANATOMY was integrated into a database of Japanese SNP
for geriatric research (JG-SNP). JG-SNP is characterized
by inclusion of detailed clinical and pathological data
of elderly autopsy cases, which are not obtainable with
other SNP databases.
This database has been developed by the Prime
Minister’s Millennium Project and the Database
Development Program of Japan Science and Technology
Corporation (JST) in collaboration with TMGMC.
