Products > Overview

We provide comprehensive, cutting-edge digital resources for scientists, clinicians, and anyone affected by autism. With a bioinformatics approach, we are creating an interdisciplinary forum that combines the latest genetic, neurobiological, and clinical information about autism spectrum disorders.

AutDB: The Autism Database

In 2007 we launched the first database that collects all genes linked to autism, . This database is an active collection of candidate genes identified in genetic association studies, genes linked to syndromic autism, and rare single gene mutations. AutDB is designed with a systems biology approach, integrating genetic information within the original Human Gene module to corresponding data in subsequent Animal Model, Protein Interaction (PIN), and CNV modules.

Autism Reading Room

We are creating an online resource to enhance public understanding of autism research. Autism Reading Room is designed to explain scientific advances in autism to a general audience. Its objectives are to assist affected families in understanding their diagnosis, introduce the field of autism research to clinicians and practitioners, and promote public understanding of brain development.

Autism Dictionary

As part of Autism Reading Room (see above), we are creating an integrated autism resource that explains neurobiological, genetic, and clinical terms about autism spectrum disorders. These descriptions will eventually include interactive visual and audio components. Read More >

Autism Quiz

To enhance public knowledge of autism, we have created a social media application (“App”) which allows the general public to share facts about autism with friends.  Freely available on iTunes, our Autism Quiz App features four challenging quizzes:  Beginner, Advanced, In the News, and Misconceptions.
