This data collection effort was funded by a seed grant to Guang Guo from the Odum Institute at the University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill and a major grant to Guang Guo from the William T. Grant Foundation. Special acknowledgment is due to the BioSpecimen Processing Facility at the University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill for extracting the DNA from the saliva samples and for preparing the DNA plates for genotyping and to UNC Mammalian Genotyping Center for genotyping. We would also like to thank the Chapel Hill Sociology Department—Tianji Cai, Yi Li, Alice Weng, Allison Matthews, Bethany Remington, Brandon Wagner, Cindy Karol, Crista Cuccaro, Eric Amidon, Jacob Rosch, Jennie Smith, Kayo Suzuki, Marybelle Guo, Reine Duffy, Richard Silc, Rick Bradley, Shawn Bauldry, Stefanie Knauer, Teresa Edwards, Tim Cupery, and Tim Wander—for their contribution to the project.
