A new, improved version of SFARI Base that streamlines and facilitates the process whereby researchers can request access to SFARI data and biospecimens as well as the submission of research recruitment requests, has launched.
New data were added to SFARI Gene in November 2018. This data release included updated gene scores for candidate autism risk genes, as well as the addition of new genes and copy number variant loci associated with autism. New mouse, rat, zebrafish and Drosophila models were also added.
SFARI is pleased to announce that it has selected four awardees in response to the 2018 Bridge to Independence Award request for applications. This program helps early-career scientists transition from mentored training positions to independent careers in autism research.
