Using ancient DNA profiling, isotope analyses, and archeological clues, investigators saw high-status, male-centered families, along with more modest graves for unrelated individuals.

As part of the shift, DNA.Land, which was run as an academic research project, will delete all data by the end of the month and ask customers to resubmit it.

A genomic analysis of ancient and modern samples revealed population clusters and ancestral contributions stemming from historical migrations and admixture events.

Careful With That

Researchers warn that there are finite ancient samples for genetic analysis and argue that policies should be in place to ensure they are studied responsibly.

Researchers uncovered six clusters among the more than 2,500 individuals they analyzed and noted varying degrees of Norse Viking ancestry in their cohort.

Researchers analyzed more than 550 new and previously sequenced exomes for individuals from African rainforest hunter-gatherer and farming populations, searching for local adaptations.

The firm is reassuring participants that their data is secure following media coverage highlighting GMI's position as a fully-owned subsidiary of WuXi NextCode.

With exome sequences for tens of thousands of Finns, researchers identified deleterious variants linked to dozens of clinically relevant quantitative traits.

During a conference call to discuss the firm's second-quarter results, CEO and President Francis deSouza also highlighted potential growth from clinical sequencing.
