Abstract

Distinct neurodevelopmental disorders have a common genetic etiology that explains the high degree of comorbidity among these disorders. A recent study sought to identify copy number variants across five neurodevelopmental disorders, and detected an enrichment for chromosome 9p24.3 duplication encompassing DOCK8 and KANK1 in affected individuals. Such large-scale studies will help uncover additional causative and modifier loci within common pathways, which will enable the development of therapeutic targets for the treatment of multiple disorders.
