SFARI Reviews Mouse Models Used in Autism Genetics Research

Published September 25, 2012 in Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative

New genetic variants that increase susceptibility to autism are emerging at a rapid pace from scans for copy number variants (CNVs) deletions or duplications of DNA segments and next-generation sequencing. Given the profusion of data, it seems timely to assess the availability and usefulness of mouse models in which to study these genetic risk factors.
