New Light on Genetic Origins


January 08, 2018

The remains of two infants in Alaska, dated to approximately 11,000 years ago, have yielded  a far reaching conclusion. In a paper published last week in Nature, several scientists announced DNA from these infants and the people from whom they sprung represent the earliest inhabitants of the New World. They are the people from whom were descended all the  other preColimbian peoples.

Read the paper as it appeared in Nature.
