Chromosome 15q Duplication and Autism

Mike Porath, editor-in-chief of Sphere.com, writes about his autistic daughter being diagnosed with Chromosome 15q Duplication Syndrome.

The article states that Chromosome 15q Duplication Syndrome is “the most frequently identified chromosome mutation in people with autism”. (Keep in mind that we are still learning about chromosomes and their impact on autism, so this information may change rapidly.)
