Oxford Ancestors: Exploring your Genetic Roots

A dear friend of mine just received his genetic roots exploration in the mail and I am fascinated by the results.

Some ethnic groups are opposed to DNA research for fear of losing their sovereign nation status or other ethnic rights, but this technology is super neat and my wife and I are going to do it for fun.

Who has not asked these questions? Who are we? And, where, do we come from? Check out Oxford Ancestors.

Genetics research is now about to end our long misadventure with the idea of race,” Steven Olson writes in his new book, “Mapping Human History,”

In an article published in The New York Times, Is Race Real, by Nicholas D Kristof, the author quotes, “Genetics will increasingly show that most humans are mongrels, and it will make a mockery of racism.”
