A large number of metabolomics datasets from human and animal studies, both blood and brain, have been generated by the ADMC. These datasets are made publicly available through the AD Knowledge Portal. Metabolomics data would not be possible without the efforts of consortium members, including early career researchers, who provide extensive data wrangling, development of methods and tools for analysis. Hence as a reminder, any use of ADMC data or resources must acknowledge and cite both the ADMC and the specific data contributor(s).
- The ADMC acknowledgement:
“Metabolomics data is provided by the Alzheimer’s Disease Metabolomics Consortium (ADMC) and funded wholly or in part by the following grants and supplements thereto: NIA R01AG046171, RF1AG051550, RF1AG057452, R01AG059093, RF1AG058942, U01AG061359, U19AG063744 and FNIH: #DAOU16AMPA awarded to Dr. Kaddurah-Daouk at Duke University in partnership with a large number of academic institutions. As such, the investigators within the ADMC, not listed specifically in this publication’s author’s list, provided data along with its pre-processing and prepared it for analysis, but did not participate in analysis or writing of this manuscript. A complete listing of ADMC investigators can be found at: https://sites.duke.edu/adnimetab/team/.”
- In order to accurately acknowledge data gathering and pre-processing by the ADMC, data users must include a laboratory specific acknowledgement statement in the methods section of manuscripts. These study/dataset-specific acknowledgements can be found in the Study Pages. Depending upon the length and focus of the article, it may be appropriate to include more or less of these statements.
