Over the next four years, researchers will aim to pinpoint the impact of personal genomic information given to patients with autism and their families.

A new study suggests that common variants influence neurodevelopmental disorder risk and the way the conditions manifestation themselves.

Researchers explored the role of de novo variants and copy number alterations in the disease using new and existing exome sequences for children with Tourette disorder and their parents.

IQuity develops tests that use RNA expression data to predict, detect, and monitor disease, as well as stratify patients by severity of disease.

Cytox will work with AIBL to test new algorithms for identifying individuals most at risk for developing Alzheimer's disease using its current technologies.

The company said the NIH funding will enable it to further validate the saliva-based test and prepare it for commercial launch later this year.

An analysis on thousands of Japanese individuals with autism spectrum disorder or schizophrenia uncovered shared pathways and an abundance of rare exonic copy number variants.

The assay was shown to have a simpler workflow and was able to detect mosaicism, with only a slight decrease in sensitivity compared to a lab-developed test.

The framework, called HEAL, could be used as an early screening test for AAA and as a personal health management tool. In addition, it may be applicable to other complex diseases.

ADx Healthcare is selling an APOE test on the Helix marketplace, while HealthLytix and Dash Genomics are marketing a polygenic hazard score for late-onset Alzheimer's.

The UPenn team will collect genetic information from outside patient cohorts, reorganize it in a streamlined process, and provide a database for downstream studies.

Researchers used CRISPR to engineer mice that have multiple genetic variants associated with late-onset AD to facilitate research into biomarkers and treatments.

Researchers used brain expression data from mice with well-documented sleep traits to identify gene networks that overlap with those in human depression.

In an epigenome-wide association study of depression, the researchers tied DNA methylation to disease symptoms and suggested a role for axon guidance disruption.
