An online database called NyuWa catalogs genetic variations among nearly 3,000 individuals and provides a comprehensive reference genome for the Han people.

Emerging tools and techniques that may advance autism research.
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.
The app relies on artificial intelligence and could help researchers standardize studies of pupil differences in autistic people and in mouse models of autism.
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.
The software compares gene expression in cells derived from organoids with a reference atlas of the developing mouse brain.
