Science and society

  • Mice lacking MYT1L – the same gene that Jake Litvag lacks a copy of the autistic teenager – are part of a new research program funded in part by the Litvag family. Spectrum covered a study in these mice in October. AP
  • Blood tests that check pregnant women for genetic disorders are far less accurate in rare diseases like Prader-Willi and Angelman syndromes than they are in Down syndrome. In 2019, Spectrum looked in depth at the pitfalls of prenatal testing for autism-related conditions. The New York Times
