Description

Description

The principle objective of the Autism Genome Project (AGP) is to identify genes that underlie susceptibility to autism to ultimately understand the biological mechanisms underlying the disorder. This is the largest collaborative effort of its kind representing 13 different institutions. The AGP will capitalize on the scientific expertise and sample collections from consortia in North America and Europe: the Autism Genetics Cooperative (AGC), the Autism Genetics Resource Exchange (AGRE), Collaborative Programs of Excellence in Autism (CPEA), the International Molecular Genetic Study of Autism Consortium (IMGSAC), and from additional individual groups and experts.
