Whole genome sequencing of ASD quartet families

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is genetically heterogeneous with >100 susceptibility genes known. We used whole-genome sequencing (WGS) of 85 quartet families (two parents and two ASD-affected siblings) to comprehensively examine mutation characteristics. Our results emphasize using WGS to maximize the detection of all classes of mutations potentially involved in autism, and to enable the interpretation of that data in confirmatory and predictive diagnosis in different individuals in a family.
