Washington: A new research has found a full genome sequencing examining the entire DNA code of individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and their family members - a finding that could provide a definitive look at the wide ranging genetic variations associated with ASD.The study reports on full genome sequencing on 32 unrelated Canadian individuals with autism and their families, participants in the Autism Speaks Autism Genetic Resource Exchange (AGRE).The results include both inherited as well as spontaneous or de novo, genetic alterations found in one half of the affected families sequenced.This dramatic finding of genetic risk variants associated with clinical manifestation of ASD or accompanying symptoms in 50 percent of the participants tested is promising, as current diagnostic technology has only been able to determine a genetic basis in about 20 percent of individuals with ASD tested.
