The extraordinary decline in the cost of sequencing a whole human genome, from $10 million in 2008 to $1,400 by late 2015, means that in the coming years science will almost certainly be able to answer the Charles Murray question: Are some of the gaps in average IQ among the races at least partly genetic?

It’s past time for public intellectuals to seriously ponder the implications of either answer: yes or no.

Read the whole thing there.
