Whether a gene should be considered a ‘novel candidate’ for autism depends not just on whether it’s been linked to the condition before, but on the strength of that link.
Asking participants in genetic databases about their family’s medical history can help researchers uncover genetic variants tied to conditions such as autism.
The brains of many people with autism may exhibit a characteristic arrangement of chemical groups on the proteins that DNA coils around.
A new chart of DNA’s three-dimensional structure reveals genomic regions that control distant genes during development.
A massive collection of brain tissue reveals common genetic variants that influence gene expression in the brain.
It’s been 50 years since the first description of Rett syndrome, a hodgepodge of supplements sickens a boy with autism, and gender stereotypes make it hard to spot girls on the spectrum.
A new tool allows researchers to identify thousands of genome errors in dozens of people at once.
