ARC Data Commons grants researchers access to over eight years of de-identified
natural history data contributed by people with ALS – affording an unprecedented
level of insight into this complex disease.
Through the ARC Data Commons, researchers can begin to ask more targeted questions
about the connections between ALS symptoms, genetics, and disease biology. By providing
a large, ever-expanding dataset, and powerful tools to filter and visualize the data, the
ARC Data Commons will enable scientists to answer these complex questions – that
previously might have required months or years of research – in a matter of minutes.
This database will continue to grow as people with ALS contribute more data
to the ongoing
ALS Research Collaborative
(ARC) natural history study.
