The more scientists dig into DNA, the more intricate its contribution to autism seems to be. Here, we unravel the complex genetics of autism.
Misaligned gene expression maps suggest that some autism-linked genes play distinct roles in mouse and human brains.
Researchers expand on the already enormous progress made on the Human Proteome Project
An analysis of four molecular datasets shows a distinct signature, including changes in gene expression and chemical DNA modifications, in some autism brains.
Researchers have identified a distinctive pattern of gene expression in the white blood cells of young autistic boys.
Studying Smith-Magenis and Potocki-Lupski syndromes — two single-gene conditions in which people have trouble reading social cues — may boost our understanding of autism.
Advances in research and help from families have brought scientists to the brink of an effective therapy for Angelman syndrome.
An analysis of whole-genome sequences from nearly 500 families has implicated 16 new genes in autism.
