for those of you with an iq 2.5 sds above the mean (ca. 138?), you might want to contribute your genome to this project! (i won’t be. don’t think i meet the cutoff. =( ):
This research is conducted by Davide Piffer (Italy) and Jeff Hsu (USA)
We seek to identify genes that have an effect on general intelligence in humans. For that reason we need raw genome data from high IQ individuals.
The preliminary phase of our project (analyzing genomes from two scientists) has produced brilliant results and for this reason we want to follow up with genomes from more high IQ individuals.
Many people have already taken the 23andMe test, which enables its users to download raw data file. We’re looking for genomes from individuals whose IQ is at least 2.5 SDs above average.
The results of this study will be published on a pre-print, open…
