Latest Heritability of autism Stories
By using deep DNA sequencing, an international team of researchers led by the Autism Sequencing Consortium (ASC) has increased the number of genes identified with autism spectrum disorder from nine to 33.
Newfound Genetic Differences Provide Many Hints at Causes New York, NY (PRWEB) October 29, 2014 Small differences in as many as a thousand genes contribute
DALLAS, October 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- RnRMarketResearch.com adds "Autism - Pipeline Review, H2 2014" and "Endometriosis - Pipeline Review, H2 2014" market research reports
People who suffer from autism have a variety of symptoms, including difficulty interacting with others, repetitive behaviors, and hypersensitivity to stimuli like sound and touch. A new study from MIT describes a hypothesis that could account for the wide variety of behavioral symptoms.
The majority of the genetic risks for developing autism can be traced to common versions of genes, not rare variants or spontaneous mutations, according to the results of a National Institutes of Health-funded study that appeared in Sunday’s edition of the journal Nature Genetics.
First connection between a genetic event, physical features and autism SEATTLE, July 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A researcher at Seattle Children's Hospital and Research Institute has
Autistic-like behaviors and decreased cognitive ability may be associated with disruption of the function of the Adenomatous Polyposis Coli (APC) gene.
"Aha" moments are rare in medical research, scientists say.
While experts typically focus on genetic factors when analyzing the causes of autism spectrum disorders, new research appearing in the Journal of the American Medical Association has found that environmental factors are equally as important.
Rare copy number variations are more common in families that are affected by autism, suggesting that this type of genetic testing could prove to be an important tool in the individualized diagnosis and treatment of the condition.
