Dr. Abraham Palmer interviewed on KUSI about the genetics of non-hererosexual behavior
A recent study, "Large-scale GWAS reveals insights into the genetic architecture of same-sex sexual behavior," published in Science Magazine found that there is no single gene that leads to non-heterosexual behavior. The study was conducted by Dr. Andrea Ganna and colleagues.
KUSI News interviewed Dr. Abraham Palmer on what the study findings may mean. Dr. Palmer, who was not involved in the study, noted that researchers were able to identify "a few specific genes that influence non-heterosexual behavior in both men and women." However, the study did not establish a way to predict non-heterosexual behavior by looking at a person's genes.
