Researchers from the University of Cambridge are crowd-sourcing data to study the genetics of mathematical ability
The research group led by Professor Simon Baron-Cohen at the University of Cambridge are running a study looking at the genetics associated with mathematical ability. All adults (over 16 years old) are welcome to participate. As with all studies on Heterogeneous, you own all of your data and can choose exactly who has access to it and what research you want to support. If you have genetic data from 23andMe, they can use this data in the study. For participants who have not had their genomes sequenced, free genome-sequencing may be provided in the future for some participants in the study by Heterogeneous or by the researchers.

Participate in the study
The math test is just 12 questions long and has a time limit of 20 minutes.
If you have it, add your 23andMe data
If you already have data from 23andMe (a genetic testing company) you can add it to your profile for researchers to use. If you don't, then you can still participate by purchasing a test from Heterogeneous, or earning a free test from participation in research studies.
