Dozens of Different Gene Defects are linked to Autism

Two new studies published on Wednesday in the journal Nature have found that dozens of different gene defects are linked to autism. The studies related to the developmental disorder have been conducted by scientists of University of California, San Francisco, and at more than 50 laboratories worldwide.

According to the two studies, the mutations, which could work together or alone, are connected in a few basic molecular pathways, which could be objectives for future treatments.
