Attention Deficit with Hyperactivity Disorder

Genetic Expression Mapping to Identify Networks of Functionally Related Autism Risk Genes

In this project, we use an approach to “pathway” definition using gene expression data that can unite a number of autism-implicated common polymorphisms and rare variants into a network with functional implications.

  • Study director: Lauren Weiss, PhD
  • Sponsor: Brain and Behavior Research Foundation
  • Official study title: Genetic expression mapping of functionally related autism risk genes
