Très intéressant article de Nature, 2013, pointant les “3 sujets les plus tabous actuellement en génétique: la race, l’intelligence et la violence”

Article de Nature, 2013, Taboo.

“As far as genetic taboos go, race is probably one of the most heavily policed from within the scientific community, largely because of the way researchers have examined its intersection with other controversial traits, such as intelligence”

“some researchers have asked whether the taboo on the genetics of race has become so severe that it bars legitimate research. In 2005, for instance, geneticist Bruce Lahn of the University of Chicago in Illinois published studies3,4 suggesting that variants of two brain-development genes possibly linked to intelligence are evolving differently in white Europeans and African ethnic groups”
