Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), or Autism as it is variously referred to, still remains something of a mystery. Since the 1990s a deluge of media reports about an increase in the prevalence of ASD has led to much wider public discussion of the disorder. Professor Thomas Bourgeron’s laboratory at the Pasteur Institute in Paris has significantly contributed to autism research for many years.  Prof. Wei Liping, director of the Center for Bioinformatics at Peking University, has spent many years analyzing data related to genes that may be related to ASD.
