Monogenic - Portal Development Working Group

The Portal Development group is one of the three working groups making up the Monogenic Network. This working group is tasked with the creation and running of the Monogenic Portal.

The Monogenic Portal aims to be a user-friendly web-based interface, through which clinicians and researchers around the world can contribute data and samples from families with Parkinson’s disease (PD), as well as single cases suspected to have a monogenic (Mendelian) cause for their PD. The portal will also be used to obtain the results of genetics studies of their patients, as well as anonymized global/aggregated data from other GP2 participating centers.
