I just noticed a test called the Warrior Gene at FTDNA.
I wonder if people are aggressively lining up for the test?
Do you think this test might help in subgrouping?
"In the studies, scientists found that men with the Warrior Gene variant were more likely to punish or react aggressively than men with the normal MAO-A gene. One study (Beaver et al, 2009) suggests that young men with the Warrior Gene variant are nearly twice as likely to be members.
Human behavior is complex and influenced by both genes and our environment or circumstances. Men with the Warrior Gene are not necessary more aggressive, but are more likely to be aggressive than men without the Warrior Gene variant.
Men have one X chromosome, so they have only one copy of the MAO-A gene. Women have two X chromosomes and two copies of the MAO-A gene, so even if a woman has one copy of the Warrior Gene variant, she also has a normally functioning second MAO-A gene. Because of this, there is little or no difference in a woman’s behavior if she possesses one copy of the “Warrior Gene.” The effect on women’s behavior when she has two copies of the Warrior Gene is not known.
This test is now available for men to determine whether their MAO-A gene is the Warrior Gene variant. The test is not available for women at this time because the Warrior Gene’s effect in women is not known.
Additional details about the Warrior Gene genetic variant of MAO-A can be found in Sabol et al, 1998."http://www.familytreedna.com/landing/warrior-gene.aspx
