In ‘Enormous Success,’ Scientists Tie 52 Genes to Human Intelligence
Genetics figured out that it makes some people smarter than others. The DNA of intelligent people differs from others in fewer mutations! So there is no "intelligence gene", but heredity takes place. That's where the genetic scissors come in handy!

8 Genetic Mutations That Can Give You 'Superpowers'
More than 99 percent of your genetic information is exactly the same as every other person on the planet. Your genes determine your skin colour, sex, and hair colour and whether or not you have certain genetic diseases.

Synthetic genes can make weird new proteins that actually work
Novel proteins, created from scratch with no particular design in mind, can sometimes do the work of a natural protein. The discovery may widen the toolkit of synthetic biologists trying to build bespoke organisms.
