Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Individuals with Autism
Individuals who have been diagnosed with autism
Other: No Intervention
There is no intervention for this study.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Correlation of Microbiome to Autism via Relative Abundance Found in Microbiome Sequencing [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Relative abundance of bacterial classes within taxonomic phyla and, more broadly, within their domain will be analyzed by sequencing the gut microbiome. These data will then be categorized among specific Autism Spectrum Disorders


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Validation of Sequencing Methods [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    To validate the methods used to sequence samples


Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
Stool samples
