Insight Podcast: James Lee interview on SSGAC EA3

Spencer Wells and Razib Khan interview James Lee (Professor of Psychology, University of Minnesota, BA Berkeley, PhD Harvard) about the recent SSGAC EA3 GWAS.

Comment: James mentions that EA3 may be approaching the GCTA h2 limit (~0.15? so limiting r ~ 0.4) already. But the limit for actual cognitive ability is much higher; with enough data I think we could get to r ~ 0.6 or even r ~ 0.7 eventually for common SNPs -- similar to height.
