In PLOS this week: phenome-wide association study of psychiatric disorder polygenic risk scores, CNV patterns in rhesus macaques, and more.

Individuals with autism spectrum disorder who were younger or with a more severe condition were more likely to undergo genetic testing, a new analysis has found.

In PNAS this week: analysis of 1,200 high-coverage Samoan genome sequences, metabolites associated with frailty among the elderly, and more.

A new analysis from a UCSD-led team has found that the mutation affecting the ACTL6B gene affects chromatin accessibility and transcription activity.

In Genome Research this week: approach to isolate viral genomes from metagenomic sequence collections, regulatory shifts in individuals with autism spectrum disorder, and more.

Researchers identified 34 episignatures that could be used for diagnostic testing and the interpretation of ambiguous genetic test results.

The analysis also implicated gene sets involved in glutamate signaling and the immune system.

Individuals with germline PTEN mutations who have autism spectrum disorder or developmental delay often also have copy number variations, a new study has found.

In Cell this week: a quantitative proteomic atlas based on the Cancer Cell Line Encyclopedia, gene regulation and differentiation in Toxoplasma gondii, and more.

Exome sequences for nearly 35,600 cases and controls revealed genes prone to mutation in autism spectrum disorder, along with related cell types, functions, and developmental stages.
