Dienekes' Anthropology Blog: mtDNA of Yemeni and Ethiopian Jews

The way I see it, only a large-scale study of all global Jewish populations may uncover verified ancient Jewish lineages for both Y-chromosomes and mtDNA. The recent studies on Jews have uncovered several genetic sub-clusters of Jews, and only lineages that occur in 2 or more of these clusters, and preferably geographically separated ones have a strong claim of representing original Jewish lineages. There is a limit on what can be uncovered about the past from the study of living populations.

VIDEO: Jewish DNA – The Kohanim Gene and the Lost Tribes of Israel

Video excerpt from a lecture by Jon Entine (author of Abraham's Children: Race, Identity, and the DNA of the Chosen People) discussing the Kohanim (Cohanim) Gene, also known as the Y chromosomal Aaron hypothesis and how it can help us establish the truth or fiction behind the ten lost tribes of Israel, discussing such groups as Ethiopian Jews and the Lemba tribe of southern Africa. In 2007, Entine published Abraham's Children, which examined the shared ancestry of Jews, Christians and Muslims, and addressed the question "Who is a Jew?" as seen through the prism of DNA. In the lecture, he also [more...]

DNA Testing and Genetic Profiles Help Avoid Broken Hearts Polls Reveal

Several states have DNA testing legislation with New York acting earlier this year to warn 31 genetic labs that they are in breach of state regulations and California ordering thirteen laboratories to cease operations. As GINA takes full force it is clear that confidence in the benefits of DNA analysis will grow.” Dr. Carey concluded, “The potential to avoid a broken heart through genetic dating, or a failed heart through early medical intervention is just to tempting to ignore.” The planned research will be carried over the Web and mobile research platform managed by morefocus media.

Jewish DNA - Genetic Research and The Origins of the Jewish People

What was the real fate of the Lost Tribes? How did the advent of Christianity change the DNA of humanity, and why Jews — the tiniest fraction of the world’s population — score highest on intelligence tests and hold so many Nobel Prizes, why there are disproportionately so many more Jewish lawyers and doctors, and what the answers to such questions tell us about human nature and nurture. Entine vividly brings to life the profound human implications of the Age of Genetics, retelling the story of the Bible through the prism of DNA, while illuminating one of today’s most controversial [more...]

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Oscar: Swearing at an oath

With this definition in mind, the evil that Israel has done becomes manifest. The legislation reeks of injustice. It only applies to one subset of Israel, to the Arab minority.  It is clearly targeted toward them. It is making a blanket claim that all Israeli Arabs are forthwith considered fifth columnists. By legislative fiat Israel has now declared that Arab subversion of the Jewish state is now passed down genetically, just like Mitochondrial DNA. All Arabs are guilty of treason without exception and must prove by solemn oath otherwise. The law ironically is disobedient to the rules of [more...]

The Spittoon » What DTC Genetic Testing Can—and Can't—Tell You

Unknown genetic factors, as well as environment, are also important.  Additionally, because most research is conducted in populations with European ancestry, people from ethnic minorities get limited information from DTC genetic testing. Through its research, 23andMe is working to improve the information that all people can get from their DNA data.  Our 23andWe surveys allow everyone to contribute to work aimed at understanding some of the most basic facets of our biology, and have already resulted in the publication of a report in a peer-reviewed scientific journal.  Our Parkinson’s [more...]

Jewish Facts From Portland: News Host Cried: CNN Owned by Jews

He was born in Guanabacoa, Cuba and raised in a suburb of Miami, Florida. Good grief! Here we go again. Everything is owned by the Jews; that is if you don’t like them. Our less than 1% of people certainly do get around, don’t we? I wish my friends would tell me what their secret is in owning everything. How did I get left out. Since when, I'd ask him, don't Jews like Latinos? We have Jews in Latin America. Look at Mexico. On my one and only trip to Mexico when my children were in grade school, we were stumbling about in Mexico City and it was lunch time. We came upon a Jewish [more...]

Created in 2006 at JTA's request, it is now independent. Tracing the Tribe readers may remember several posts concerning a cluster of "Ashkenazi" breast cancer among Hispanic women in Colorado's San Luis Valley a few years ago.

The Lonely Planet Guide: Jesus died here - The Virtual Mosque

Suzanne Marie Olsson, the New York-based author of another book on the subject, has suggested exhuming the remains for carbon dating and DNA testing to check for Jewish ancestry. But she was forced to leave Kashmir several years ago after shrine managers filed a police complaint accusing her of “causing hurt to Muslim beliefs”.

Cherokee Nation challenges newly minted tribes Lawsuit claims Tennessee’s recognition of six groups was illegal NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A representative of the Oklahoma-based Cherokee Nation has filed a lawsuit in Tennessee charging the state’s Commission of Indian Affairs violated open-meeting “sunshine” laws when it unexpectedly gave state recognition to six local groups. The commission appears to have altered its rules in order to do so. It took action June 19, about a month after the state legislature had curtailed its authority and 11 days before the date on which the legislature [more...]

Faces of America: Do we know ourselves as well as we think ...

Considering my personal fascination with history, genealogy and culture, the show was Saturday afternoon manna. I immediately began wondering how my pie chart would appear. From what I know, my ethnic breakdown goes something like this: Father—Swedish/European and a little bit of Choctaw Indian Mother—Puerto Rican (Spanish and Taino Indian) That’s what I’ve been told. That’s the narrative account by which I categorize my ancestry. But what if that was totally off base? What if I’m not who I always thought I was? For many of the participants, their ethnic pie chart results shook [more...]

The Black Death Really is Bubonic Plague: WorldAtFocus.com

After extracting DNA from 75 skeletons in mass graves or plague pits, scientists have recently confirmed definitively that the Black Death that consumed more than 1/3 the population of Europe from 1347 to 1353 was caused by Yersinia pestis, a bacterium that carries bubonic plague. Other possible causative agents were suspected, like viral hemorrhagic fever, but this recently uncovered evidence seals the debate. The plague had its origins in the 1330's in China, which was the epicenter of world trade at that time, and which also is estimated to have lost about a third of its population at the [more...]

According to the web page, that message has been displayed on the site since Thursday, March 06, 2008 at 4:00:57 PM. Why is Family Tree DNA partnered with a site that has been down for apparently seven months? I have also recently had several people complain that they have waited a long time for DNA test results from FTDNA. There must be something going on with them to be so disorganized. To top it off, after all of this waiting, they cannot tell us which Haplogroup Charlie belongs to and there are only eight matches in their database of 139,861 Y-DNA records at the 12-marker level (but all [more...]

VDARE.com: Blog Articles » Henry Louis Gates on Malcolm Gladwell's ...

Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates is continuing his series of DNA and genealogical inquiries into the makeup of various celebrities. The usual pattern is that the celebrities turn out to be a little whiter than they had hoped. For example, Mexican-American actress Eva Longoria turned out to 70% European, which disappointed her because she thought she’d be more like 70% nonwhite. Now Gates has an article in The Root about New Yorker writer Malcolm Gladwell’s genealogy. Gladwell’s own discussions of his family tree (English on his father’s side, Northwest European, Jewish, and middle [more...]

Arab News Blog » Israel Declares for Ethnic Nationalism

In a globalizing world with massive labor migration, ethnic nationalism is a recipe for race war. And, of course, as a historian I reject the whole idea of a “race” in the 19th century Romantic nationalist sense as a figment of the imagination. Brian Sykes found on looking at the mitochondrial DNA of Europeans that all the women had only one of 7 haplotypes or patterns in the chromosomes, and that the same 7 appeared in all linguistic and national groups, including e.g. the Basque, though the proportions varied. Germans are no different in this regard from the Irish or from Bulgarians. [more...]

DNAction » Pathway Launches an Extended Carrier Status Screening ...

Traditionally, pregnancy-related genetic testing has been limited to prospective parents whose family history or ethnicity suggests that they may be at an increased risk for a particular genetic disease. One example of this is genetic screening for Tay-Sachs disease mutations in people of Ashkenazi Jewish origin. The problem with this approach is that it relies on self-reported ethnicity and family history, which can be incomplete or misleading. Additionally, the ethnic distribution and prevalence of many genetic disease-causing mutations is not known. The Simple Solution Using only a [more...]
