Researchers have created the most complete macaque reference genome to date and used it to catalog genetic variation among hundreds of monkeys.
Mutations that disrupt binding sites in RNA molecules may play a role in autism and a variety of psychiatric conditions, according to a new study.
Mutations seen in only some of the body’s cells often affect gene activity in the brains of people with autism, and can involve large segments of DNA, according to two new studies.
A new technique for masking portions of raw genomic data increases shareability without sacrificing privacy.
Researchers expand a massive repository of data on gene activity in people to show differences between males and females.
Genome sequences from a research cohort of autistic African children and their families have revealed more than 4 million novel variants, some of which occur in genes not previously linked to the condition.
Repeating bits of the genome may be responsible for nearly 3 percent of the genetic architecture of autism.
A trove of DNA sequences from 141,456 people — and counting — offers an unparalleled look at genetic variation.
