Genetic analysis of 15q11-q13 in autism  

Duplications affecting chromosome 15q11-q13 are the most common cytogenetic abnormality in autism, and linkage and association studies indicate that this region is involved in inherited susceptibility for autism in chromosomally normal families. This study will dissect the genetic basis for inherited risk associated with 15q11-q13 in autism.
