Wondering whether your child is going to be good in sports? Here is a way to find out. A private laboratory chain in India Thursday launched a novel sports gene test that can provide answer to such queries. The laboratory chain said that the answer to a child excelling or not is decided by a gene called ACTN-3, widely referred to as the Sports Gene. The test by Super Religare Laboratories (SRL), a leading diagnostics network in the country, involves a swab sample collection from the mouth to judge the sporting efficiency of a child. This will be helpful in identifying the sport that children, aged between 2 to 13 years, have a natural predilection for.
