Project Description

Autism spectrum conditions are highly variable and heterogeneous. This project will establish whether subgroups of individuals with autism can be detected within a large database of phenotypic data. Using data from the Simons Simplex Collection, a comprehensive multi-modelling approach will be taken to establish whether a sub-type structure can be empirically derived within the data. Work arising from this project has the potential to have significant impact on our understanding of autism spectrum conditions, in particular heterogeneity within the autism spectrum.
