Description

Description

The objective of the Initiative is to provide for the contribution of DNA and clinical and medical information from individuals in families in China who are affected by autism spectrum disorders to an open-access data repository of clinical and genetic information dedicated to promoting autism research. The Repository will be used by researchers in China and around the world, enabling a greater number of scientists to join in the search for factors that influence autism.

Strategic Plan Objective

Strategic Plan Objective

Yellow dot: Objective has some degree of funding, but less than the recommended amount. 7D. Establish and maintain an international network of biobanks for the collection of brain tissue, fibroblasts for pluripotent stem cells, and other tissue or biological material, by acquisition sites that use standardized protocols for phenotyping, collection, and regulated distribution of limited samples by 2011. o This includes support for post-processing of tissue, such as genotyping, RNA expression profiling, and MRI. o Protocols should be put into place to expand the capacities of ongoing large-scale children's studies to collect and store additional biomaterials, including newborn bloodspots, promoting detection of biological signatures. o Support should also be provided to develop an international web-based digital brain atlas that would provide high-resolution 3-D images and quantitative anatomical data from tissue of patients with ASD and disease controls across the lifespan, which could serve as an online resource for quantitative morphological studies, by 2014. IACC Recommended Budget: $82,700,000 over 5 years.
