The Stanley Online Genomics Database uses samples from the SMRI Brain Bank. These samples were processed and run on gene expression arrays by a variety of researchers in collaboration with the SMRI. These researchers have performed analyses on their respective studies using a range of analytic approaches. All of the genomic data have been aggregated in this online database, and a consistent set of analyses have been applied to each study. Additionally, a comprehensive set of cross-study analyses have been performed.


Publications based on any of the clinical or genomic data should credit the Stanley Medical Research Institute, as well as any individual SMRI collaborators whose data is being used. Publications which make use of analytic results/methods in the database should additionally cite Dr. Michael Elashoff.
