Searching for Genome Sequence Risk Variants in Inherited Autism
2019 Dataset Analysis
University of Colorado, Denver
This project will look for previously undetected sequence variations in the Olduvai domains of the genome; a DNA sequence that has played a role in brain evolution and appears to be connected to the severity of ASD. Using machine learning techniques, advanced sequence analysis will be applied to look for specific changes in the Olduvai domains that are linked to risk for autism.
