In collaboration with the Mitra Lab at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, MindSpec published an original research article in PLoS Computational Biology. Their study identified enriched expression of autism risk genes within the cerebellum, a brain region important for balance and movement. They first utilized the Allen Brain Atlas to analyzemore
MindSpec proudly announces publication of an original research article in PLoS One, prioritizing copy number variants (CNVs) linked to autism. The genome-wide list of CNVs was compiled from the autism database AutDB (http://autism.mindspec.org/autdb/Welcome.do), licensed to the Simons Foundation as SFARI Gene. As an integrated, modular genetic database for autism, AutDBmore
MindSpec recently published their second book chapter by InTech Open Access publishers, summarizing the current state of genetic testing for autism. The authors emphasized that at present, genetic tests cannot diagnose autism spectrum disorders (ASD); they can only identify genetic variants potentially responsible for ASD pathogenesis in a given individual.more
