Research and Autism News Tennessee Autism News

March 26, 2013- "Significant Insights Into Common Form of Autism: Study Identifies Genetic Connections in 15q Duplication Syndrome"-  A recent research study is making genetic connections between autism and Chromosome 15q Duplication Syndrome (Dup 15q). Previous research suggests that as many as 1,000 genes may contribute to autism phenotypes, but as much as 1-3 percent of all autism spectrum disorder cases may be a result of 15q11-q13 duplication alone.
