Geneticists ‘date’ genetic variation associated with autism.

Human geneticists have discovered that a region of the genome associated with autism contains genetic variation that evolved in the last 250,000 years, after the divergence of humans from ancient hominids, and likely plays an important role in disease. Their findings were presented at the American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) Annual Meeting. Researchers at the University of Washington, University of
