The largest analysis of genetic sequences from autistic people implicates 184 genes in the condition — nearly doubling an estimate from last year.
Researchers presented the unpublished results today at the 2019 American Society of Human Genetics meeting in Houston, Texas.
The researchers analyzed sequences of exomes — the protein-coding portions of the genome — pooled from multiple datasets. They built off their unpublished analysis of nearly 35,000 sequences. That analysis, which the team presented at a conference last year, tied 99 genes to autism.View Full Article
