100, maybe more

Now I’ve talked before about the issue of scientist looking for a cure to autism and how for some within the autism community, that’s not what they necessarily want. Well, when I read this article I thought, it’s going to take a while anyway you look at it. According to some researchers, there are probably a 100 or more genes that make up what we know as autism.

The article is entitled “Researchers Say Autism May be Linked to More than 100 Genes” by Jennifer Chait over at Inhabitots.I know for my kids, a 100 pieces is about their limit when it comes to puzzle. I can only imagine the limit for scientist when it comes to genes.

Sincerely-
