Base paired up: study suggests genetic formula to monogamy

Base paired up: study suggests genetic formula to monogamy
 

It could be a handy riposte for the stalwart commitment-phobe. When challenged on their reluctance to be tied down, half-hearted partners could shrug and claim their neural gene expression profiles made them that way.
That is, at least, if research on smaller animals holds true in humans. Researchers who compared the DNA of 10 different species found a common genetic formula which marked out males that stayed with their mates and lent a hand from their less-than-committed cousins.
The work suggests evolution hit on the same biological trick to make certain species monogamous, by turning up... read more
