New study supports importance of structural variation

April 2, 2012 – Research led by Margaret A. Pericak-Vance, Ph.D., John R. Gilbert, Ph.D., and Dale Hedges, Ph.D., of the John P. Hussman Institute for Human Genomics at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine again supports the importance of structural variation in autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This unique study using high-resolution arrays to detect changes in DNA structure as small as one thousand base pairs further strengthens the case that rare structural variants at multiple genes contribute to autism spectrum disorders…
