I will be trying to organize and add SNPs related to dementia and ApoE-ε4-associated pathology.
My interest in this topic began as something very personal: I discovered via 23andMe that I am an ApoE-ε4 carrier, an unsettling bit of news, partly because it means my chances of living to a ripe old age aren't what I thought they were.
In the meantime I've made other discoveries. One, I love neurology! Two, personal genomics is beginning to transform medicine, and will do so radically in the coming years, and I'm interested in learning more about it, and figuring out what more can be done with the massive amount of genotyping data I, and an increasing number of people I know and care about, have about ourselves!
Note to self: shut off SNPTips before editing here!

Note to you: Thanks for starting this! (ApoE 3/4)
- My pleasure! At some point in the next week or two there will be a major "upgrade". --User:Epsilon4 2013-03-14 14:14 (UTC) 14:14, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
To do (not necessarily by me, though, if someone feels ambitious!)
2014-05-15. (Waiting a couple days to see what bots do.)
- http://snpedia.com/index.php?title=Rs4728029&action=history JlickBot has already done the most important edits. SNPediaBot will fill in 'on microarray' over the weekend.
