This book is based on an in-depth conversation between Howard Burton and Jay Gargus, Professor of Physiology, Biophysics and Pediatrics and Director of the Center for Autism Research and Translation at UC Irvine. This wide-ranging conversation examines the recent explosion in our genetic understanding and its implications for the future of medicine, together with the importance of understanding the underlying molecular mechanisms in order to successfully treat a wide range of genetic disorders. Prof. Gargus focuses on autism, dispelling myths associated with the condition, advocating why a treatment should be actively pursued, and illustrating what we can learn from the recent breakthrough in cystic fibrosis research.

This carefully-edited book includes an introduction, Machine Repair, and questions for discussion at the end of each chapter:

I. The Lure of Genetics - Where the action was—and still is

II. Genetics 101 - A basic overview

III. Towards Disease - Intervening in metabolic pathways

IV. Autism - Myths, current understanding and challenges

V. Pathways and Pleiotropy - Searching for mechanisms

VI. Reasons for Optimism - Streamlined bureaucracy and bold prognostications
