At the University of Iceland, researchers are hoarding over 500,000 blood samples from 150,000 different Icelandic people. They are using this vast amount blood samples to test find treatments for diseases and even to form a better understanding of human intelligence. Researchers are using Icelandic blood samples, because 90% of the population in Iceland is considered pure Icelandic. That means their subjects will all have similar DNA, which will help their findings to be more finite. A neurologist and geneticist named Kari Stefansson is very excited to study DNA found in the blood. He stated, “When you begin to look at genetics… it turns out all life on Earth is rooted in DNA."
