Intelligence — the ability to learn, reason and solve problems — predicts all important life outcomes and is highly heritable. Recent genome-wide association studies have identified inherited genome sequence differences that account for five percent of the variance in intelligence and thus, for ten percent of its heritability. These findings open new avenues for research into the causes and consequences of intelligence using genome-wide polygenic scores that aggregate the effects of thousands of DNA variants.
