    @Cort went to a conference and wrote it up. Mostly covering familiar ground but there were a couple of moments when I went "Wait, that's new". Like this: (I was sure they'd only used the nano-needle on 10 patients. Now it seems to be 17. And the pattern is holding.)

    Also this. Is this the same gene that inspired Phair? He also found one that was in every severely ill patient, and only one, if I recall correctly. It was the one massive outlier and it inspired his metabolic trap hypothesis. If true, interesting that it is a brain gene.

    It begs the question if many PwME have family members with autism? I do and 23&Me also informs me that I have genes which put me "at risk" for autism. Just looking forward to the day where we have a unifying theory for all of these interesting bits, but at the moment more hopeful to see some publications in the near future explaining some of this.

    ETA: Data from 23&Me, the analysis is actually through Promethease.
