Diana Deutsch and Trevor Henthorn’s critique of the article “Early Childhood Music Education and Predisposition to Absolute Pitch: Teasing Apart Genes and Environment” by Peter K. Gregersen, et al  received validation through its publication in the American Journal of Medical Genetics. By reanalyzing the Gregersen data, upon which the argument of the aforementioned article is based, they showed that Absolute Pitch is related to Tone Language, not genetics. Their work on the relationship between genetics and Absolute Pitch is now considered to be among the leading research on the subject and serves as a valuable reference for geneticists.
