    About This Project

    US national reported that 1-2% of students are diagnosed with autism. Autism is difficult to treat because it is based on many subtle mutations in multiple genes. Interestingly, the Mexican cavefish shows traits that are very similar to this disease. The goal of this project is to investigate whether the cavefish's gene expressions are similar to human patients. We will then extract useful information which will facilitate the discovery of new treatment for autism.
