    5. Family genetic reveals new clues to autism risk
    A new study of nearly 2,400 children with autism, their parents, and unaffected siblings has revealed valuable insights into the genetics of the condition. Researchers found that certain inherited mutations that shortens the formation of proteins were more common with autism, compared to their unaffected brothers and sisters. These mutations were more likely to be passed from mothers with no signs of having autism to their sons, who are more at risk to develop the condition. This adds to the growing number of studies on the condition and genetics in the past five years. The study was reported in the May 11 issue of Nature Genetics. (sciencedaily.com)
