Projects in this subcategory seek to identify new genes that are implicated in increased risk for ASD or to better understand genetic risk factors that were previously identified.
Graph: Genetic risk factors accounted for a majority of research funding in Question 3 in 2010 (63%). Gene-Environment studies received 25% of funding, Epigenetic studies 7%, and Environment studies 5%.
