Human gene-cultural differences (Examples)

Beaver et al., 2010. Three dopaminergic polymorphisms are associated with academic achievement in middle and high school (DRD4)

Beaver et al., 2010. Genetic risk, parent–child relations, and antisocial phenotypes in a sample of African-American males. [The analyses for this study were confined only to African-American males. To our knowledge, this is the first time that a gene ×environment interaction effect on antisocial behaviors has ever been reported for African Americans. Given that African-Americans are disproportionately overrepresented in the criminal justice system (DeLisi and Regoli, 1999), much more gene×environment research with ethnic minorities is needed. We should note, too, that these same models were calculated for Caucasian males, but the results of the models did not reveal any statistically significant genetic or gene ×environment effects. Although speculative, these divergent results could be due to the fact that the allelic frequencies of the genes included in this study are known to vary considerably across racial and ethnic groups (Chang et al., 1996; Gelernter et al., 1997, 1998). (Criminality G x E interactions in African Americans)

Chiao and Blizinsky, 2009. Culture-gene coevolution of individualism collectivism and the serotonin transporter gene. (Higher rates of pro-collective serotonin transporter in East Asians. Compare here: Caucasian-Americans currently demonstrate more collectivistic tendencies than native Japanese. My comment: Living in a Diverse/homogeneous nation modulates ones expression; relative context is important.)

Harpending and Cochran, 2002. In our genes (DRD4)

Garcia, et al, 2010. Associations between Dopamine D4 Receptor Gene Variation with Both Infidelity and Sexual Promiscuity. [This is consistent with the dramatic differences in DRD4 VNTR allele frequencies and behavioral patterns found globally such as in the generally polygamous and agonistic Yanomamö Indians of South America (high 7R+ frequencies) and the generally egalitarian !Kung of the Kalahari (low 7R+ frequencies) [26]. Evidence that DRD4 VNTR status is related to social and sexual behavioral strategies provides a plausible mechanism for varying selective pressure and observed racial, ethnic, and regional differences in allele frequencies.] (DRD4)

Parra, Kittles, Shriver, 2004. Implications of correlations between skin color and genetic ancestry for biomedical research

(Different populations differ in the correlation between skin color and ancestry. As such, caution is warranted when inferring ancestry from color. The research on skin color and ancestry provides strong evidence that admixture mapping for other traits is doable.)

Mountain and Risch, 2004. Assessing genetic contributions to phenotypic differences among ‘racial’ and ‘ethnic’ groups

(Social delineations of race fairly accurately reflect ancestral heritage and ancestral populations differ genetically in practically significant ways. As such, racial differences have practical importance.)

Rotimi, 2004. Are medical and nonmedical uses of large-scale genomic markers conflating genetics and’race’?

(Social delineations of race poorly reflect ancestral heritage and ancestral populations can not be clearly defined. As such, though ancestral populations differ genetically in some medically significant ways, ‘racial’ differences have no practical importance.)

Tate and Goldstein, 2004. Will tomorrow’s medicines work for everyone?

(There are medically significant genetic differences between “racial” and “ethnic” populations. For the sake of social justice, more members of underrepresented populations should be included in studies so to detect if various medications are genetically optimal for these populations.)

Tishkoff and Kidd, 2004. Implications of biogeography of human populations for ‘race’ and medicine

(Knowledge of regional ancestry has important medical significance but racial taxonomic categories poorly describe human genetic variation, given the clinal nature of differences.)

Jorde and Wooding, 2004. Genetic variation, classification and ‘race’

(Traditional concepts of race imperfectly describes human genetic variation; knowledge of ancestral differences is medically important given the current level of understanding.)

Cho and Sankar, 2004. Forensic genetics and ethical, legal and social implications beyond the clinic

(While research on ancestral genetic variation is medically valuable, the research needs to be integrated with ethnical analysis, given the potential for the abuse.)

Keita et al., 2004. Conceptualizing human variation

(Human genetic variation does not structure into subspecies but this doesn’t preclude substantial genetic variation between populations. Linguistic clarity is important.)
