    Scientists discover first clear cut gene linked to autism-Scientists from the University of Washington discovered that people with a mutation of the CHD8 gene have a 'very strong' likelihood of having autism. It is the first time that researchers - from 13 institutions - have linked a definitive cause of autism to a genetic mutation. A total of 15 children with the CHD8 mutation shared similar characteristics in appearance as well as problems with sleeping and digesting food.
