Finding a mutation linked to autism traits can have life-changing consequences for autistic individuals and their families.
Watch the complete replay of Ivan Iossifov discussing the genetic basis of autism’s features.
An analysis of DNA from more than 20,000 people with autism identifies 12 regions in the genome that harbor inherited risk factors for the condition.
A newly expanded database of information from people in the United Kingdom provides a detailed picture of genetic diversity.
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.
Genetic variants across the genome contribute to about 8 percent of the risk for certain developmental conditions — much more than previously thought.
