Genetics-related research is rapidly developing increased understanding of the genes that underlie most human as well as the molecular processes in which these genes take part. It is reasonable for educators to assume that many learning-related traits will he found to have a genetic basis and that genetic testing will someday allow educators to access this learning-related information for each student. Knowledge of learning preferences would enable advisors, instructors and the students themselves to more closely match student needs with the appropriate educational environments and teaching methods. At the extreme, this information could make possible truly personalized education.
