The best players on the planet are all living on the same planet.
That’s the conclusion of a new study by researchers from a team at Oxford University.
They analyzed the genomes of 6,879 athletes in the FIFA World Cup, and discovered that every single one of them shares a very similar genetic blueprint.
The researchers say they have identified the gene responsible for making athletes strong and healthy.
Here’s what you need to know about the research:This is the first time researchers have found that genetic traits associated with athletic performance, like a person’s height and weight, are inherited in the same way.
“It’s an extraordinary finding, and it raises a lot of questions,” says Peter Johnson, a geneticist at Oxford and the lead author of the study.
“There’s no question that these are genes that are in the genetic code, and if they have been in this common location for hundreds of thousands of years, then it means they are shared across species.”
To figure out how athletes’ genetic makeup differs from one another, the researchers looked at genetic variation in DNA and examined their genes.
They compared athletes’ genomes to their genome sequences from around the world.
“We had a really high level of coverage of all the different genomes, and then we looked at their DNA,” Johnson says.
“We saw that the genomes were remarkably similar.
They were all remarkably similar.”
The study’s authors believe that the common genetic inheritance of the genes may have given rise to the human athlete’s genetic signature.
“The fact that they’re shared across the entire species is really interesting, because we know that they come from the same parental line,” says Michael Johnson, the lead researcher on the study and a professor of genetics at the University of Oxford.
“It’s sort of a striking difference, in that we can tell the lineage from the genome.”
Johnson and his colleagues say that it is not yet clear why the genes in these athletes are so similar, but it’s likely that they were all derived from one single ancestor.
The gene responsible may be involved in muscle mass, muscle strength, bone density and other physiological traits.
The genes involved also appear to be very similar to those in other species.
The scientists say that genetic differences between athletes could help scientists to develop new drugs to treat disorders like asthma and allergies.
The findings may also lead to better understanding of the evolutionary roots of our genes, such as the origins of the human and chimpanzee species.
