Who should register?

You don't need to register to access the database

Only those who wish to submit details of novel mutations or who wish to submit details of people affected with ALS or wish to access the GWAS data need register. We are not trying to restrict membership; we are trying to let you know whether you need to register. Most of the database may be accessed without restriction, and registration is only necessary for submitting data. If you cannot answer YES to BOTH questions below, you do not need to register.

Do you have (or are likely to find) novel ALS related mutations AND/OR details of people affected with ALS? AND Are you willing to submit data to alsod?

OR do you want to view GWAS data available on alsod? This has been passworded to avoid subject identification according to the publication:
