MACROD2-AS1 may play a role in autism

Postby renhchung » Sun May 17, 2015 11:35 pm

This study used a previously published GWAS dataset containing 1192 families with autism but applied a different analysis strategy (multi-SNP test). They identified MACROD2-AS1 with genome wide significance and a haplotype in the gene also showed association with autism.
