How heritable is autism? Twins research suggests we may be vastly underestimating it – Genetic Literacy Project

Genetic Literacy Project How heritable is autism? Twins research suggests we may be vastly underestimating itGenetic Literacy ProjectBy comparing the variants and traits in thousands of people, researchers can identify which variants are associated with specific traits and behaviors. For their twin analysis, by contrast, the researchers looked at the frequency of behavioral traits … […]
