Question 2: Short-term Objective G  

$9,149,672.07
Fiscal Year: 2010

Green dot: Objective has greater than or equal to the recommended funding.2SG. Support five studies that associate specific genotypes with functional or structural phenotypes, including behavioral and medical phenotypes (e.g., nonverbal individuals with ASD and those with cognitive impairments) by 2015. IACC Recommended Budget: $22,600,000 over 5 years.
