Autism Genetic Database: A comprehensive database for autism susceptibility gene-CNVs integrated with known noncoding RNAs and fragile sites

This database currently contains the full list of autism susceptibility genes as well as all Copy Number Variations (CNVs) found to have a relationship to autism. Additionally, all noncoding RNA molecules (snoRNA, miRNA, and piRNA) and chemically induced fragile sites are stored as well.

Current data-points (hg18)
Genes226
CNVs743
piRNAs667774
microRNAs939
snoRNAs374
fragile sites120

This information is currently accessible via an in-house human genome browser focusing specifically on the chromosomal features associated with autism, and in a tabular format broken down by chromosome. Both of these options can be found below.

Genome Browser Tabular Data Dispaly
A genome browser that displays the genes, CNVs, ncRNAs and fragile sites in an easily accessible graphical visualization tool A tabular data display that allows the user to observe the chromosomal spatial relationship between the genes, CNVs, ncRNAs and fragile sites. This also provides links to Entrez and pubmed for each gene, as well as miRBase for miRNAs, snoRNA-LBME-db for snoRNAs, and piRNABank for piRNAs.



This database was developed by Gregory Matuszek, MS and Zohreh Talebizade, PhD (PI).
