Whole-Genome Sequencing Reveals New Types of Autism Risk

Published October 20, 2014 in Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative

Much of the genetic risk for autism may reside in regulatory regions of the genome, hidden from traditional methods of sequencing analysis. That’s the upshot of preliminary results from three studies presented at the 2014 American Society of Human Genetics Annual Meeting in San Diego. Together, the findings from these new studies show the promise of looking for autism risk in unusual places.
