The Material Gene situates contemporary genomics within a history of genetics research yet is attentive to the new ways in which knowledge claims about heredity, race, and gender emerge and are articulated to present-day social and political agendas. This is called gender schema theory. Lawrence Kohlberg did a great deal of research on this phenomenon and came up with three stages that children go through in their understanding of gender.

The Sports Gene is a nonfiction book written by David Epstein, at the time a senior writer for Sports Illustrated, on the effects of genetics and sports training on human athleticism. Through investigative journalism, Epstein takes the reader through his experiences regarding what makes the difference between an amateur and a pro-athlete.

29,   A genome-wide association study (GWAS) might be the way to go to identify genes that have variants that affect gender identity.

"Written genres" (more commonly known as "literary genres") are those works of prose, poetry, drama, hybrid forms, or other literature that are distinguished by shared literary conventions, similarities in topic, theme, style, tropes, or common settings, character types, or formulaic patterns of character interactions and events, and an overall predictable form.
