Forecasts for this year’s Nobel Prizes include several researchers whose work is relevant to autism.
New findings call into question a fundamental assumption about how genes are regulated.
An analysis of whole-genome sequences from nearly 500 families has implicated 16 new genes in autism.
A new technique enables scientists to isolate, and chart gene expression in, tens of thousands of cells at once.
A blood test can accurately detect whether a fetus carries large mutations of the kind linked to autism, according to pilot-study results.
A website called GeneMatcher has helped researchers identify a new gene for intellectual disability, developmental delay and autism.
