Molecular anthropology and race

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Molecular analyses have led to many recent advances in the study of human variation. The addition of DNA analyses of fossils now allows the testing of hypotheses derived from sampling living people. Further sampling of all of the regions of the human genome has led to a remarkably consistent evolutionary scenario that helps to explain the patterns of variation found today.
