The size of children’s skulls and possibly also their intelligence is influenced by two newly discovered gene variants, according to videnskab.dk, which refers to the results of a large-scale European research collaboration with Danish participation.

“The results are based on a large-scale international collaboration. It is exceptional basic research, where we find thus far unknown functions of certain genes. Based on the research, we now know more about the development of babies,” explains Hans Bisgaard, consultant physician, dr. med., head of Dansk BørneAstma Center (Danish Children’s Asthma Center) and professor of children’s diseases at Copenhagen University.
