Two candidate genes have risen to the top, and may help scientists understand what autism really is.
Teasing out how genes interact can offer clues to autism’s causes and point to treatment targets.
A February study that tied several new genes to autism contained a large statistical error, according to a report from 14 independent researchers; the original team is working on issuing a correction.
A new atlas maps the locations of nearly 30,000 noncoding RNAs — genetic strips that may modify the expression of genes.
Asking participants in genetic databases about their family’s medical history can help researchers uncover genetic variants tied to conditions such as autism.
An analysis of whole genomes from more than 5,000 people has unearthed 18 new candidate genes for autism.
A massive sequencing study spanning seven countries links 38 new genes to autism and developmental delay.
A new approach ranks genes’ ties to autism based on their expression patterns in different types of brain cells.
