Chapter 3 charts the scientific and social histories of investigating autism as genetic (one gene/one autism) and shifts to genomics (many genes/many autisms). It traces the initial optimism and subsequent failure to find a major gene for autism, and technological convergence of “autisms” with multiple diseases at the molecular level.
