Hi


The first full genome of autistic individuals as well as their family members has been unveiled. It is hoped that this will shed more light on the causes of autism.

Follow the link below for more information:

Very interesting. It will be interesting to see the exact genes and proteins that they encode that are involved.

A whole genome is affected that means the series of genes are in different order not just one. Resequencing a gene might be easier and less risk if could be done. Autism is deviation of genome means several genes are in play so re-sequencing will be in hundred years until the whole genome is mapped of human species. It could be attributed to speciations where the split to evolutunary tree.

Exactly! By 802,701 AD we will be the Eloi and all those other people will be Morlocks.

We would obviously be the morlocks. At least the version from the 2002 movie.

Yes! Just hope that the general public will realize it too.

The more research done, the better :D
