Description

Description

Autism is one of most heritable neurodevelopmental disorders with genetic basis well established through family and twin epidemiological studies. The goal of this proposal is to apply novel analytic approach to identify families from existing University of Wisconsin-Autism Center of Excellence and National Institutes of Health collections where inheritance is most parsimonious with single gene transmission, and to apply novel genomic technologies to identify the genes that are responsible.
