Iranian Y-DNA Project | Iranian.com
As well as tracing deep ancestry, the Iranian Y-Chromosome DNA Project serves a purpose for genetic genealogy.

I have already interacted a handful of times with the regular users on Iranian.Com and noted the enthusiasm of a few concerning genetic genealogy. My intentions are to inform the Iranian community of this opportunity, guide prospective participants through the process and [more...]

Developing genetic markers are needed in order to prevent “false positives” results as common genetic markers can be found in non-inborn American populations. In conclusion, this particular [more...]

Don't Judge Too Quickly « Today's New Reason to Believe
Many people regard shared DNA sequences as the best evidence for evolution and common descent. But, as this recent work from UT Arlington demonstrates (along with other studies), there are other mechanisms beside common ancestry that can introduce the same DNA sequences in organisms unrelated via common descent. These types of studies indicate that evolution’s best evidence may not support it at all. Horizontal gene transfer could be a consequence of some other type of mechanism, like parasite-mediation. It is interesting to note that the same transposons appear in tarsiers and squirrel [more...]

Mormon scholars suggest various solutions to the absence of DNA connections – that some Native Americans are in fact descended from Asian populations; that there may have been sufficient intermarriage between Lamanites and other groups to cause the DNA connections to recede to the point of being undetectable; and [more...]

Australian Aborigines Were Once Indians - Study
Dr Raghavendra Rao worked with a team of researchers from the Anthropological Survey of India to sequence 966 complete mitochondrial DNA genomes from Indian 'relic populations'. He said, "Mitochondrial DNA is inherited only from the mother and so allows us to accurately trace ancestry. We found certain mutations in the DNA sequences of the Indian tribes we sampled that are specific to Australian Aborigines. This shared ancestry suggests that the Aborigine population migrated to Australia via the so-called 'Southern Route'." The 'Southern Route' dispersal of modern humans suggests movement of [more...]
