Integrated Biostatistical and Bioinformatic Analysis Core (IBBAC)  

The goal of the Integrated Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Analysis Core (IBBAC) is to provide analysis tools, data analyses, and access to state-of-the-field tools, expertise, and leadership for the integrated or combined analysis of data arising from the Clinical Phenotype: Recruitment and Clinical Assessment (B) and Clinical Phenotype: Treatment Response (C) Cores as well as the four proposed projects. The ultimate aim of this research is to identify a unique set of clinical, subclinical (e.g., imaging-based phenotypes), and genomic endpoints (or "fingerprints") that are correlated with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and/or Developmental Delay (DD) and are distinct from features found in typically-developing children.

Strategic Plan Question Question 1: When Should I Be Concerned? (Diagnosis)
Strategic Plan Objective Yellow dot: Objective has some degree of funding, but less than the recommended amount. 1.3 Identify a panel of biomarkers that separately, or in combination with behavioral measures, accurately identify, before age 2, one or more subtypes of children at risk for developing ASD by 2014. IACC Recommended Budget: $33,300,000 over 5 years.
