Previously he was at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and the University of Cambridge in England. We explore current understandings of genetics of autism and Sano Genetics’s studies.

This episode is one part of our conversation, to hear the other half of our conversation check out their podcast, “The Genetics Podcast”. On that episode, Dr. Patrick Short interviews me about genetic counseling and cytogenetics.
