DNA was extracted from PBMCs or brain. Genotyping was performed by Agencourt Bioscience Corporation utilizing high-throughput sequencing of codon 112 (position 3937) and codon 158 (position 4075) of exon 4 of the APOE gene on chromosome 19.

Data updated 6/23/2015

Participants were genotyped for APOE alleles by Polymorphic DNA Technologies.

All APOE data were generated by Polymorphic DNA Technologies as part of a collaboration with Allan Roses and Zinfandel. http://www.polymorphicdna.com/
