As usual, Dienekes and Razib have talked about this one on their blogs.
Anything new or particularly interesting?
- within-Germany resolution (see figure, labeled by Razib)
- big sample, of nearly 6000
- LCT (lactase), HERC2 (eye color and hair color) and HLA (immune function) regions stood out as most highly correlated to the North-South gradient.
- they frame the importance of this in relation to picking appropriately matched controls in case-control studies
