Estimated heritability for Autism Spectrum Disorders from ASD probands (Pr), as well as for their mothers (Mo), fathers (Fa), siblings (Si) and pseudo-controls (Pc). Blue dotted reference line is set to the estimated heritability from probands; the black line marks the expected heritability for first degree relatives; and the gray line marks the expected heritability from pseudo-controls. Expected values derived from simulations mimicking the recruitment strategy producing the samples for (A)-(D). (A) Simons Simplex Collection or SSC data; (B) Autism Genome Project or AGP data; (C) AGP data, only simplex families; (D) AGP data, only multiplex families.
