Scientists build most detailed genetic map of African-Americans

from Boston Globe's White Coat Notes Blog

An international team of scientists led by a Harvard researcher recently published a sweeping genetic map of African-Americans, an accomplishment that could help illuminate the biological basis for disease. The study analyzed data from 30,000 African-Americans and highlights a subtle, but surprising variability between people of different ancestry: During the genetic shuffling that occurs when DNA from a mother and father mix to create sperm and eggs, African-Americans' genetic material combines differently than Europeans'. more
