Parents of children with rare autism-linked mutations are banding together for support and to join forces with scientists, accelerating the pace of research.
Two new studies point to the possibility of detecting autism mutations before birth — along with all the ethical and logistical problems that may bring.
Certain repeated stretches of DNA that are linked to the expansion of the primate brain may also enhance autism traits.
A pair of maps that depict variation in the human genome may help reveal the genetic roots of autism.
Finding a mutation linked to autism traits can have life-changing consequences for autistic individuals and their families.
An analysis of spontaneous mutations in nearly 11,000 individuals with developmental delay or autism implicates 49 new genes.
