Whole exome sequencing reveals inherited and de novo variants in autism spectrum disorder: a trio study from Saudi families

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5515956
PMID: 28720891
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-06033-1

[…] variants effect, we utilized PredictSNP2 web interface for its improved performance compared to CADD. In addition, available public Autism genes/variants databases (SFARI Gene;, and AutismKB; were checked for reported SNVs and CNVs in our list of validated genes or bands harboring these genes in case of CNV, . Finally, segreg […]


Integrative genomic analyses for identification and prioritization of long non coding RNAs associated with autism

PLoS One
PMCID: 5451068
PMID: 28562671
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0178532

[…] The “DE lncRNA” gene list is composed of all significant differentially expressed genes which have lncRNA biotypes according to Ensembl (v84). The ASD gene list was extracted from AutDB, the SFARI human gene database []. We utilized the SFARI “Gene Score”, which categorizes ASD risk genes based on evidence for implication in ASD, to filter the ASD risk genes. The “SFARI” gene l […]


Reverse Pathway Genetic Approach Identifies Epistasis in Autism Spectrum Disorders

PLoS Genet
PMCID: 5226683
PMID: 28076348
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1006516

[…] vironment for statistical computing: Genes Database–UCSC: Correlation Test R script: […]


Genome wide, integrative analysis implicates microRNA dysregulation in autism spectrum disorder

Nat Neurosci
PMCID: 5841760
PMID: 27571009
DOI: 10.1038/nn.4373

[…] lly expressed miRNAs or ASD-associated miRNA modules are enriched for these genes. We first tested enrichment for a set of ASD risk genes from the Simons Foundation Autism Research initiative (SFARI) AutDB database (ASD SFARI; Methods), which have been implicated via common variant association, candidate gene studies, copy number variation (CNV), and genetic syndromes. For comparison, we also exam […]


Transcriptomic signatures of neuronal differentiation and their association with risk genes for autism spectrum and related neuropsychiatric disorders

PMCID: 5022076
PMID: 27483382
DOI: 10.1038/tp.2016.119

[…] 70) included in the high reliability core data set of the AutismKB database (for details on these two lists see ‘03_SFARI_all': all 341 genes listed in the SFARI Gene Autism database, excluding non-supported genes. ‘04_SFARI_score4plus': all 250 genes listed in the SFARI Gene Autism Database with a score ⩾4, that is, genes with minimal evidence in at least one cand […]


CNTN6 mutations are risk factors for abnormal auditory sensory perception in autism spectrum disorders

Mol Psychiatry
PMCID: 5378808
PMID: 27166760
DOI: 10.1038/mp.2016.61

[…] genes, we identified exonic CNVs and deleterious SNVs in Class I-III genes from Yuen et al., TADA genes from Sanders et al. or genes from the SFARI database (9 November 2015; The overlap between the database is illustrated in and the complete list of genes is indicated in . For SNVs, we only considered those with a minor allele frequency of less than 1% […]
