Most autistic people do not receive the medically recommended genetic tests for autism. Brenda Finucane and her colleagues want to change that.
Many genes linked to autism, schizophrenia and neurodevelopmental delay regulate gene expression and support communication between neurons.
The largest-yet study of genetic data from autistic people has identified 255 genes associated with the condition.
There is not yet a single example of a gene that, when mutated, increases the likelihood of autism but not of other neurodevelopmental conditions, including intellectual disability.
Genetic sequences from nearly 53,000 people with autism, developmental delay or intellectual disability reveal strong ties to 98 genes.
Many people with mutations in the NCKAP1 gene have autism or autism traits, according to a new study spanning seven countries.
The first genetic analysis of multiple types of variants from people with autism or other neurodevelopmental conditions reveals hundreds of genes that may be linked to neurodevelopment.
