Finding autism genes by genomic copy number analysis  

The investigators aim to continue their collaborative effort that has produced and enhanced a highly successful open data and biomaterials resource for the research community, the Autism Genetic Resource Exchange (AGRE). This collaborative network application involving six research sites and the AGRE data coordinating center will systematically and comprehensively investigate the genetics of ASD to identify rare mutations, chromosomal abnormalities, and common variation contributing to ASD susceptibility.
