MindSpec published anoriginal research article in PLoS One detailing a predictive gene map for autism based on AutDB gene sets. After compiling a reference set of 84 autism genes, we profiled of their functions and expression patterns. We then screened the human genome to identify 442 potential novel autism candidatemore

MindSpec published a description of the AutDB Animal Model module in BMC Medical Genomics. This module provides a comprehensive resource of ASD-related animal models which are linked to corresponding candidate genes in the original Human Gene module. Notably, animal models are annotated with a new standardized vocabulary of phenotypic termsmore
Awarded funding by the Simons Foundation to catalogue submicroscopic structural duplications, deletions and rearrangements in the genome called copy number variants (CNVs) that are implicated in autism spectrum disordersmore
AutDB offers a new Animal Model module that stores information for any human autism-linked genes studied in an animal model such as mouse, which provides a framework for studying how a gene functions.more
