Single nucleotide polymorphisms or SNPs (pronounced "snips") are DNA sequence variations that occur when a single nucleotide (A,T,C,or G) in the genome sequence is altered. SNPs do not cause disease, but they can help determine the likelihood that someone will develop a particular illness.
The ARISk™ Test is comprised of many SNPs which have been shown to be associated with autism.
