Populations of the Americas were founded by early migrants from Asia, and some have experienced recent genetic admixture.
Some observations on the paper: New World populations (Totonac and Bolivian) are placed between Nepalese and Kyrgyzstanis, indicating higher affinity of these American samples to central Asians than to eastern Asians. This is more l... Read Post
