Abstract—In this paper, English-Chinese translation-based writing error types of twenty-one graduate students in the same class for the same course were collected to search for the correlation with language gene polymorphism as single nucleic polymorphism (SNP) of FOXP2 gene. Students’ genome DNA was extracted from the finger-tip blood and subjected to DNA sequencing to characterize SNP information. Attention scores measured by Schulte grid were also included plus the class score. PCA (principal component analysis) correlation analysis indicated that attention score seems irrelevant to writing error types and SNPs, while two SNP alleles, rs2253478 (SNP3) and rs2396722 (SNP4), displayed preliminary correlation with writing error types. This study provided methodologically a scheme how to associate important learning behavior (phenotype) in classroom with students’ genotype (SNPs in this study) as a preparation to develop genome-based personalized education protocol in the future.
