The Autism Genetic Resource Exchange, an initiative of Autism Speaks, has contributed its data to the National Database for Autism Research, which is supported by the National Institutes of Health.

Officials of the national database believe it now may be the largest repository of data related to research on autism spectrum disorders. The Autism Genetic Resource Exchange includes phenotype and genotype data from more than 2,000 families affected by autism, including whole genome scanning of 356 families.

The national database enables researchers to access results from multiple public and private autism databases, and includes standardized data, tools and computational techniques. The database has 172,000 records from about 25,000 individuals.
