The researchers traced the timing of when these clusters developed to the emergence of agriculture in three river valleys.

The actual match rate is significantly higher than the 10 percent rate the researchers anticipated they would see when the study began in 2017.

The study aims to identify individuals with mutations in Parkinson's disease-associated genes for further analysis.

Based on allele fragment sizes and mutational signatures, Europeans may have had shorter generation times than other populations, a Biology of Genomes speaker said.

Genetic material found in tooth samples from the Bronze Age, Iron Age, and Medieval period points to migrations from Siberia at the Bronze Age-Iron Age transition.

The American Prospect writes that the pilot program to test the DNA of migrants could lead to more family separations.
