Central Nervous System Suite


The BioExpress® Central Nervous System (CNS) Suite is a large scale, comprehensive reference data set consisting of gene expression profiles, clinical annotations, and pathological information data derived from our collection of high-quality, well-documented psychiatric and neurodegenerative diseased human brain tissues and complementary animal models.

The BioExpress® CNS Suite contains genomic information on a range of disorders, including:

  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Major Depression
  • Schizophrenia
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Cocaine Addiction

Samples that comprise this broad range of disorders are represented by multiple cortical and subcortical regions, with demographically matched human control donor brain regions and extensive donor clinical information. As a result, the BioExpress® CNS Suite represents one of the most comprehensive genomic resources available for CNS-related drug discovery today.

By combining gene expression data with extensive donor clinical history, the BioExpress® CNS Suite allows you to:

  • Compare the gene expression profiles between diseased and matched control tissues over multiple cortical and subcortical regions of the same donor brain
  • Discover potential drug targets and biomarkers
  • Identify overlapping expression patterns that may indicate shared pathways across multiple diseases
