Skills expected to be provided by the sought partner

In all mentioned cases the group could contribute to the consortium by providing: 1) Access to biological samples: Over the last 20 years, we have collected biological samples (both DNA and plasma) from subjects followed up in our outpatient clinic, diagnosed with different autoimmune diseases [most of them rheumatoid arthritis (RA)], and osteoarthritis. 2) Genotype data: With regard to the RA cohort, we have genome-wide genotype data available from 700 subjects. We also have experience in analyzing genome-wide association studies. 3)Clinical data: We have collected clinical data from these patients, including disease activity, disability, mortality, joint replacement, cardiovascular diseaseā€¦ We also have experience in designing and performing longitudinal analysis, including survival analysis, linear mixed models.
