"Liberal gene" identified
excerpt from above:
Quote:
Re­search­ers have for the first time iden­ti­fied a gene that they say can in­flu­ence po­lit­i­cal out­look.

Past stud­ies had found that po­lit­i­cal views have a genetic comp­o­nent, but had­n’t point­ed out ac­tu­al genes in­volved. The new re­search from the Uni­vers­ity of Cal­i­for­nia and Har­vard Uni­vers­ity in­di­cates that a var­i­ant of a gene called DRD4 makes peo­ple more likely to be lib­er­al, if they al­so had many friends as tene­nagers...
