henotype Ontology that will help to aggregate data from over 25 phenotpying tests, which measure the cognitive, behavioral and biological features of autism. This ontology will allow researchers world-wide to share their data more easily and potentially ease the burden of participating families by defining overlaps between the phenotyping measures.
  • Dennis Wall, PhD, Assistant Professor at the Center for Biomedical Informatics of Harvard Medical School discussed using datasets from genome wide scans to discover and validate new genes and pathways implicated in ASDs.

    A second morning session focused on new research into early identification and diagnosis of autism.

    • Christopher A. Walsh, MD, PhD, Investigator, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the Bullard Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School and Chief, Division of Genetics at Children's Hospital Boston outlined the current state of screening and diagnostic methods and the importance of evolving research in this area.
