December 21, 2017
A large-scale study of blood expression profiles revealed a 87-gene signature that distinguishes between idiopathic Parkinson’s disease patients and healthy controls. The study, published recently in Neurology, studied expression profiles of more than 500 individuals. Research groups from Germany, France, USA, Slovenia and Israel took part in the EU-funded GenePark study. The computational analysis was led by the group of Sagol Center member Ron Shamir.
