Google to Begin New Autism Research Project

Hey everyone,

I found a really interesting article this weekend! google is going to be starting a new research project working on genome sequencing. The hope with this project – which aims to provide genome sequencing to 10,000 individuals- will help to diagnose specific genetic markers for those with Autism Spectrum Disorder. I am embedding the video into the post so you can see the director of the program talk about what wonderful things the program seeks to discover. Read all about it below and check out the video too!
