A blood test can accurately detect whether a fetus carries large mutations of the kind linked to autism, according to pilot-study results.
A website called GeneMatcher has helped researchers identify a new gene for intellectual disability, developmental delay and autism.
A new computational method sifts true mutations from spurious ones in a single cell’s genome.
Parents of children with rare autism-linked mutations are banding together for support and to join forces with scientists, accelerating the pace of research.
Two new studies point to the possibility of detecting autism mutations before birth — along with all the ethical and logistical problems that may bring.
Certain repeated stretches of DNA that are linked to the expansion of the primate brain may also enhance autism traits.
