I forgot about Genomelink. Musical ability that’s genetic? Seriously? Ok, I’m not Mongolian but, I’ll look at the study. Comprehensive genomic analyses associate UGT8 variants with musical ability in a Mongolian population. Park H et al. 2012 To identify genetic loci and variants that contribute to musical ability determined using a pitch-production accuracy test, researchers conducted family-based linkage and association analyses, and incorporated the results with data from exome sequencing and array comparative genomic hybridization analyses. They identified an intergenic single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) near UGT8, a gene highly expressed in the central nervous system and known to act in brain organization. In addition, a non-synonymous SNP in UGT8 was revealed to be highly associated with musical ability. jmg.bmj.com/content/49/12/747
