search for a gene or a diseaseEnter a gene or disease to explore the interactions between genes and diseases related to autism.
Update: We've made significant changes to the way disese-related gene sets are calculated on Autworks. Only gene-disease associations for which strong, recent evidence exists are now presented on the site. Additionally we made updates to our user-authenication infrastucture. As a result of this, users will have to re-upload any personal gene sets they want to analyze with Autworks. We would love to hear your feedback on these changes; don't hesitate to contact us
About These Tools
We are combining the power of network thinking with cross-disease analysis to generate a clear and clinically actionable genetic map for autism. We use human disease information from the National Institutes of Health and numerous trusted resources that report genes-to-disease and gene-to-gene associations in order to build and find both common genetic signals as well as signals unique to autism alone. We then test whether these signals can be used to improve diagnosis early, and enable faster delivery of behavioral therapies for newly diagnosed children with autism. A more detailed description of our methods may be found here.
