Un articolo di Technology Review descrive i risultati di uno studio sul legame tra geni e risultati accademici.
The largest-ever genetic study on human cognition has found more than 1,000 links between people’s genes and how far they get in school.
The work, which involved DNA from 1.1 million people and researchers drawn from 40 institutions, led to a scoring system that can roughly predict how educated someone is by examining that person’s DNA.
Those with the lowest genetic scores had only a 10 percent chance of having graduated from college. By contrast, those in the highest quintile of genetic promise did so 50 percent of the time.
