The protein interaction network or interactome for autism spectrum disorders demonstrates the many paths converging at gene landmarks. Devised by researchers at Baylor College of Medicine, the Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute at Texas Children's Hospital and colleagues, the interactome provides a new frame of reference for scientists investigating the puzzling world of autism. A report on the work appeared in a the journal Science Translational Medicine.
