NEI announces additional resources for matching genotypic data to clinical lens and fundus images

The National Eye Institute (NEI) and the National Centre for Biological Information (NCBI) have announced the addition of 72,000 clinical photographs of age-related eye disease progression to its previously established genetic and clinical research database. The new digital image data, collected from participants in the Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS), will provide a valuable resource to help match genotype information to the clinical progress of several eye diseases.
