In Science this week: single-nucleus RNA sequencing of brain tissue from individuals with autism, and more.

Single-nuclei RNA sequencing on more than 100,000 brain cells from individuals with or without ASD identified gene expression shifts in certain cell types.

To understand the evolution of brain conditions and other traits, investigators plan to sequence human and pathogen DNA in thousands of samples from Europe.

Researchers used a genome-wide association study to identify seven loci associated with ASD and other conditions, along with five loci linked to ASD alone.

By partnering with telehealth provider PWNHealth, Lineagen wants to help children on the autism spectrum start treatment faster and qualify for more benefits.

Lineagen hopes to use PWNHealth's consumer-oriented model to expand access to its testing services for developmental delay and autism spectrum disorder.

Researchers found 253 candidate disease genes, based on 10,927 exomes from patients with autism spectrum disorder, developmental delay, or intellectual disability.
