Melanie de Wit presenting at INSAR conference

GENE Amsterdam researcher Melanie de Wit presented her large meta-analysis (N 66 studies) about the polygenic score of Autism at the International Society of Autism Research meeting in Stockholm! She shows that the polygenic score is most significantly associated with an Autism diagnosis, however, the effect size is very low. Larger GWAS on Autism are needed to increase the power of this polygenic score in independent samples.
