    Abstract: Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) are a multifaceted set of neurodevelopmental disorders caused by diverse genetic, epigenetic and environmental factors. Epigenetic mechanisms such as DNA methylation regulate gene expression without changing the genomic DNA sequence, but changing how genomic information is interpreted. The identification of RNA molec... Show More
