Into Africa

I have a lot to say about the new study of African genomes by Joseph Lachance and colleagues Lachance:2012, which I think is tremendously exciting, along with the new preprint from Joseph Pickrell and colleagues on the arXiv, which includes some similar analyses with SNP data. But I’m on my way to Africa myself today for a week, and don’t have time to post all my thoughts about the new papers until I arrive there. So I’ll try to post these over the weekend.
