SFARI science staff will be presenting a number of posters about SFARI projects and resources at the International Society for Autism Research (INSAR) 2018 Annual Meeting in Rotterdam, Netherlands (May 9-12).
New Simons VIP Phase 2 data were recently added to SFARI Base. This data release included data from individuals with 16p11.2 copy number variants (CNVs), 1q21.1 CNVs and mutations in the following single genes: ADNP, ASXL3, DYRK1A, FOXP1, GRIN2B, HIVEP2, MED13L, PACS1, PPP2R5D, SCN2A, SETBP1, STXBP1 and SYNGAP1.
By assessing the 16p11.2 deletion autism mouse model, Ted Abel and colleagues uncover male-specific vulnerabilities in striatal signaling and reward function.
Lauren Weiss and Erik Ullian report on two studies using carrier-derived iPSC neurons to elucidate cellular phenotypes associated with 16p11.2 CNVs and a BRAF RASopathy mutation.
