First of the best is a study by David Cesarini et al mentioned by BrainBlogger. Cesarini works at NYU and is affiliated to IFN. "Our knowledge of specific genes involved in intelligence is very limited. New study published this month and based on the analysis of genetic data from 78,000 individuals reported 52 genes associated with intelligence, 40 of which are completely novel. Interestingly, many of these genes are also involved in determining other traits such as obesity, BMI, depressive syndromes, Alzheimer’s disease and others."
