By focusing on sequences that have diverged rapidly in humans, researchers identified regulatory sequences suspected of affecting neural processes.

Using data from the Simons Simplex Collection, researchers estimated that 5 percent of autism spectrum disorder cases may involve mosaic de novo mutations.
