Researchers have created the most complete macaque reference genome to date and used it to catalog genetic variation among hundreds of monkeys.
Emerging tools and techniques that may advance autism research.
A new high-resolution imaging device tracks brain activity in awake mice, enabling researchers to map neural circuits across the entire brain.
A new open-source software package makes it possible to model changes in human and animal behavior over the course of an experiment.
A new approach for delivering gene therapy to the brain reduces nerve damage in primates and could help make gene therapies for conditions related to autism safer.
Merging 3D clusters of neurons that mimic different brain regions models the atypical electrical activity seen in an autism-related condition.
A pair of new atlases that profile millions of cells across 15 organs offer an unparalleled look at gene activity during fetal development.
A screening technique tests how inactivated genes affect spheres of cultured brain cells; it could shed light on autism-linked mutations.
Researchers expand on the already enormous progress made on the Human Proteome Project
