Researchers who have since looked at people at the genetic level now say that the whole category of race is misconceived.

A biological/geneticbasis for race. For years, it’s been widely accepted by scientists that racehas absolutely no foundation in biology or in peoples’ genes.

Recent genetic studies have demonstrated differences across populations not just in the genetic determinants of simple traits such as skin color, but

There is indeed a biological basis for race. And it is now beyond doubt that human evolution is a continuous process that has proceeded vigorously within the last 30,000 years and almost certainly

Assumptions about genetic differences between people of different raceshave had obvious social and historical repercussions, and they still threaten to fuel racist beliefs.

2. Racehas no geneticbasis. Not one characteristic, trait or even gene distinguishes all the members of one so-called race from all the

Efforts to locate the geneticbasis of disease are aimed, ostensibly, at improving health outcomes

"Racehas no genetic or scientific basis," said Craig Venter, whose company, Celera Genomics, has been sequencing and analyzing human DNA.

Here we investigate DNA methylation variation in Swedish Arabidopsis thaliana accessions grown at two different temperatures. Environmental effects on DNA methylation were limited to transposons, where CHH methylation was found to increase with temperature.

The Black-White difference has been found consistently from the time of the massive World War I Army testing of 90 years ago to a massive study of over 6 million

But a geneticist and a sociologist say racial categories don't accurately reflect who people are, and that science has to change.

Three geneticbases of plastic responses: Overdominance: increased homozygosity increases plasticity Pleiotropy: one set of genes

A study into the geneticbasis of many common forms of migraine has identified three variants that suggest that most forms of migraine havea shared genetic foundation, regardless of how they manifest in the people who have them. Migraine affects up to 20 per cent of the population and is...

Since many genetic and environmental factors influence intelligence, it is considered a complex trait.

A new study has identified genetic changes that are linked to dogs’ human-directed social behaviors and suggests there is a common underlying geneticbasis for

Science and racehave long been uneasy bedfellows. After all, the shoddy, prejudiced half-truths dressed in scientific clothing that were touted as hard fact hit a shameful low 70 years ago

Each genetic health risk report describes if a person has variants associated with a higher risk of developing a disease, but does not describe a person’s overall risk of developing the disease. The test is not intended to tell you anything about your current state of health...

Genetic drift is random and doesn't decrease the genetic diversity of a species. If anything it would increase the diversity since the genetic
