Once the gene is sequenced, the scientists hope that zygote screening will allow the average IQ of each generation to potentially improve by up to 15 IQ points. It seems that since they're only allowed to have one child, Chinese parents are doing their best to make sure that their only kid isn't a lemon. [Source]
