Epistasis in Autism detected using MDR

A new paper by Ma et al. in the American Journal of Human Genetics describes an interaction among GABA receptor subunit genes in Autism that was detected using our Multifactor Dimesnionality Reduction (MDR) method. More information on MDR can be found here. Our open-source MDR software package can be found here.
