World's largest autism genome database shines new light on many 'autisms'

Through its research platform on the Google Cloud, Autism Speaks is making all of MSSNG's fully sequenced genomes directly available to researchers free of charge, along with analytic tools. In the coming weeks, the MSSNG team will be uploading an additional 2,000 fully sequenced autism genomes, bringing the total over 7,000.
Currently, more than 90 investigators at 40 academic and medical institutions are using the MSSNG database to advance autism research around the world."
