A novel approach to microscopy reveals the sequences and spatial arrangement of DNA within cells.
Mutations in the autism gene NLGN3 may alter the gut nervous system of mice.
Genes associated with autism are ancient, and mutations in them have wide-ranging effects on the body, indicating their importance.
Watch the complete replay of Ivan Iossifov discussing the genetic basis of autism’s features.
A novel approach to microscopy reveals the sequences and spatial arrangement of DNA within cells1. The tool could help researchers better understand the molecular interactions that underlie autism. Traditional microscopes probe cells’ structure by reflecting electromagnetic radiation (such as light or electrons) off the cells. They enable scientists to see how molecules are arranged in […]
The largest genetic analysis of postmortem brain tissue to date has yielded maps of when and where genes related to autism are turned on and off throughout life.
A new resource details the protein-coding portions of the genomes of 36 popular mouse strains.
The autism gene TBR1 controls the expression of several other candidate genes that govern the architecture of the brain’s outer section.
