Abstract

The extent to which social organization of human societies impacts the patterns of genetic diversity remains an open question. Here, we investigate the transmission of reproductive success in patrilineal and cognatic populations from Central Asia using a coalescent approach. We performe...read more

Consumer genomics is a rapidly advancing industry with the ability to gather large databases of genetic information of individual data. This information will allow people the ability to adapt their lifestyle and potentially modify disease trajectories in the future. Discover the latest research on consumer genomics here.
