Emerging tools and techniques that may advance autism research.
A new viral variant can deliver genes exclusively to the brain, overcoming a key hurdle in treating neurological conditions using gene therapy.
New software can automatically identify and quantify mouse social behavior from videos, saving researchers time.
An online database called NyuWa catalogs genetic variations among nearly 3,000 individuals and provides a comprehensive reference genome for the Han people.
Two new methods make it possible to delete long sections of the genome, expanding the reach of CRISPR gene editing.
The new technique can record hundreds of thousands of neurons firing nearly simultaneously across big swaths of brain tissue in living mice.
A new resource profiles gene expression and the accessibility of DNA in single cells across the developing human cerebral cortex and may help scientists decipher the effects of noncoding mutations linked to autism.
A short questionnaire created in consultation with autistic people is the first of its kind to accurately gauge suicidal thoughts and behaviors among adults on the spectrum.
A novel gene delivery system taps a protein found in people to encapsulate messenger RNA and transport it into cells.
Thousands of protein-protein interactions mapped in mice reveal how these networks shift across seven kinds of tissue.
