Marathon mice

A new paper is out where transgenic mice that over-express PGC1alpha exhibit greater endurance capacity. Science Blog link
It would be interesting to examine variation of this gene between humans and other primates and between human populations.

other genes related to running (with links):
in mice - PPAR
in humans - ACTN3
