NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A subset of autism cases — particularly amongst those characterized by pronounced intellectual disability — seems to stem from large stretches of similar sequence that are inherited from each parent, according to a

Researchers from the Greenwood Genetic Center have reported positive results that confirm their earlier findings in an effort to develop a test for autism spectrum disorders using Biolog's phenotype array technology.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Partek today said that it and the Kennedy Krieger Institute have been awarded a $1.8 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to develop commercial software that would identify chromosomal abnormalities underlying conditions such as autism spectrum disorder
