The Genetic Genealogist, Blaine Bettinger, was on hand to hear Spencer Wells, the director of the Genographic Project, speak. In his blog post on the event, Bettigner recounts that the project is nearly halfway completed and has collected 41,000 samples from indigenous populations and 270,000 kits have been bought by the public. Bettigner also notes that a new paper from the project on the genetic ancestry of the Tubou people of northern Chad will soon be out.
