  • An Infant’s Remains Suggest Who Exactly Migrated to North America


    http://bigthink.com/robby-berman/an-...-north-america

    Tracing the the child’s genome back, it now appears that all of these people originally emerged from a single population that first became genetically distinct from other East Asians around 36,000 years ago.
    .... while Native Americans spread across the North American continent between 22,000 and 14,600 years ago. What’s not known is whether they traveled from Asia together, or whether this split occurred before migration.
    I have never seen this study or early dates referred to before. Interesting stuff, their graphic art of mammoths and early hunters is grade school level but there are photos of the excavations and maps.

    It is very interesting. My DNA matches Anzick or Clovis Boy. & Kennewick man. It'll be interesting to see if it matches this too.

      no kidding!! I have read half a dozen books on Kennewick Man, one of those I have read several times. The oldest burial in Texas at the Wilson-Leonard site also interests me.

        No kidding. A person can upload their DNA data to a site called gedmatch dot com.

        They have a lot of different programs you can run your dna through. One is called GEDmatch Archaic DNA matches
        This utility compares your kit with various ancient and archaic samples uploaded to GEDmatch by Felix Immanuel. More info on his website

        Ancient DNA



        Below is the tabulation for Ancient DNA processed from publicly available raw files and uploaded to GEDMatch for comparison. Processed files from raw data can be downloaded from Google Drive-1, Google Drive-2, Google Drive-3, Google Drive-4 and Google Drive-5. All downloads are Build 37 (hg19). Procedure used to convert sequence reads are discussed in the blog, Convert Ancient DNA Sequence Reads to VCF format. If you want to convert SRA/FASTQ files yourself, you can use SRA / FASTQ to BAM Kit. The ages mentioned here for the below ancient samples are based on what the authors mentioned in their papers. I had posted my opinion as a blog on the accuracy of the ages of ancient DNA samples based on recent research in nuclear physics.

        You can use the Ancient Ancestry tool to compare your DNA with triangulated ancient DNA segments or get shared DNA percentage using Ancient Calculator.
