Description

Description

This project will take a comprehensive genome-wide approach to understand the interplay between genetics, epigenetics, and in utero environment in birth and early development phenotypes that are important predictors of adverse outcomes generally, and are related to ASD specifically.

Strategic Plan Objective

Strategic Plan Objective

Green dot: Objective has greater than or equal to the recommended funding. 3SJ. Support at least three studies that focus on the role of epigenetics in the etiology of ASD, including studies that include assays to measure DNA methylations and histone modifications and those exploring how exposures may act on maternal or paternal genomes via epigenetic mechanisms to alter gene expression, by 2012. IACC Recommended Budget: $20,000,000 over 5 years.
