More about The God Gene by F. Paul Wilson:
Rick's brother, Keith, a prominent zoologist at NYU, walks out of his office one day and disappears. The only clue they have are his brother's book, which mentions "the God Gene."
A million or so years ago, a gene designated hsa-mir-3998 appeared as if by magic from the junk DNA of the hominids who eventually evolved into Homo sapiens. It became a key player in brain development?specifically creativity?and laymen started calling it "the God Gene." Keith had been tracking this gene through the evolutionary tree, but immediately after running the creature's genetic code, he destroyed all the results and vanished.
