ABSTRACT
Abstract Background Autism spectrum disorder is a severe early onset neurodevelopmental disorder with high heritability but significant heterogeneity. Traditional genome-wide approaches to test for an association of common variants with autism susceptibility risk have met with limited success. However, novel methods to identify moderate risk alleles in attainable sample sizes are now gaining momentum. Methods In this study, we utilized publically available genome-wide association study data from the Autism Genome Project and annotated the results (P
