News.com: National Geographic to map human genealogy
Submitted by J.W. Bizzaro; posted on Wednesday, April 13, 2005 (1 comment)
Submitter An article by Nicholas Wade:

``A five-year project to reconstruct a genealogy of the world's populations and the migration paths of early humans from their ancestral homeland in Africa started Wednesday.

``The goal of the program--organized by National Geographic Society and IBM--is to collect 100,000 blood samples from indigenous populations around the world and analyze them genetically. Researchers at 10 local centers and at the National Geographic Society in Washington will then assign the people who give blood to lineages that trace the routes traveled by their early ancestors.

``The program is an effort to accomplish the goals of the Human Genome Diversity Project, an initiative that was proposed by population geneticists in 1991.''
