Some genes linked to intellectual ability are also associated with living longer, scientists found.

Researchers used data from the UK Biobank, comparing DNA variants from more than 240,000 people.

It is known that environment and genes both contribute to the differences observed in people's intelligence, said one of the authors Professor Ian Deary from the University of Edinburgh. The study was aimed at finding out which genes are associated with intelligence.

Some 538 genes that play a role in intellectual ability have been identified by a team of global researchers, according to a study released Monday by the University of Edinburgh.

Using these genetic discoveries, scientists predicted seven per cent of intelligence differences in an independent group of individuals using their DNA alone.

Earlier this year, a study of more than 78,000 people uncovered 52 genes linked to intelligence.

But the problem goes deeper than just a dispute over image rights, said Romeo, the granddaughter of Kahlo's sister Cristina. However, an American company called the Frida Kahlo Corporation insisted it was the legitimate owner of the rights.

"Importantly we were also able to identify some of the biological processes that genetic variation appears to influence to produce such differences in intelligence - and we were also able to predict intelligence in another group using only their DNA".

This enabled them to compare DNA with IQ scores based on verbal and numerical tests. People who had them were less likely to suffer Alzheimer's, depression, schizophrenia and obesity.
