Inside Scoop From the Autism Anchors: Special report on genetics

by  /  27 June 2017

This article is more than five years old. Autism research - and science in general - is constantly evolving, so older articles may contain information or theories that have been reevaluated since their original publication date.

Our autism anchors, Raphael Bernier and James Mancini, emphasize the critical part families play in finding genes and genomic regions that contribute to autism. They also describe what genetic research involving families entails. A parent makes a guest appearance to give her take on the relevance of this work to families like hers.

From science to the community and back again, you can count on getting the inside scoop in digestible quantities with a smile from the autism anchors.
