Neuroscientists should not forget that brains have owners, a new genetic database makes its debut, and the intense interests of people with autism offer opportunities.
Understanding how mutations in genes linked to autism perturb the different versions of proteins the genes form could reveal new targets for treatments.
Most adults with genetic variants tied to certain conditions, such as heart disease or cancer, go undiagnosed.
A massive sequencing study spanning seven countries links 38 new genes to autism and developmental delay.
Researchers have trained a computer algorithm to recognize the characteristics of autism genes.
A landmark collection of gene sequences from more than 60,000 people can help researchers spot mutations linked to autism.
Researchers are beginning to understand how mutations in a cancer-linked pathway called WNT contribute to autism.
