Two new resources catalog how genetic variants affect gene expression in the brain.

People who carry risk factors for autism but do not have the condition tend to have slightly fewer children than average, and have them later in life.
Autism runs in families, but the search for inherited risk factors has come up short — until now.
The evidence linking autism and maternal infections grows, special neuron recipes are in development, a CRISPR pioneer envisions unicorns, and 23andMe delivers empathy data.
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.
A landmark collection of gene sequences from more than 60,000 people can help researchers spot mutations linked to autism.
A new tool allows researchers to identify thousands of genome errors in dozens of people at once.
Taking a close look at people who have a mutation in a known autism gene may reveal why these people often have vastly different characteristics.
