Dr. ISAAC PESSAH of the Center for Children's Environmental Health http://www.vetmed.ucdavis.edu/cceh/in... and the MIND Institute http://www.ucdmc.ucdavis.edu/mindinst... at the University of California Davis explains that genetic and environmental factors interact to cause autism, which takes many forms. Research on the less stable parts of the genome identified genetic copy number variants as important. Environmental factors may contribute to making autism more severe.

This was part of a symposium organized by the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment of Cal/EPA http://oehha.ca.gov/index.html, the Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Unit at UCSF http://coeh.berkeley.edu/ucpehsu, and the Center for Integrative Research on Childhood Leukemia and the Environment at the University of California Berkeley http://circle.berkeley.edu. Research funding is from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and the US Environmental Protection Agency. Views expressed are not those of these agencies.
