Phylogenetic relationships of modern humans, Neandertals, and chimps.
Variation between mtDNA (HVR1) samples from chimp, Neandertal and human.
Stephen Fodor talks about the need to look broadly across the genome to find the relationship between genes and health in different people.
Geneticist Mark Stoneking, one of the authors of a controversial 1987 paper on mtDNA, talks about our common female ancestor.
Prof. Allen Moore explains that bioinformatics can deal with a huge amount of genomic data, allowing researchers to explore complex relationships between many genes or genomes.
Mutations in our DNA can be used to trace the relationships between different populations and species.
Two theories are discussedfor the descendancy of modern humans: the Out Of Africa (OOA) and the Multiregionalism (MRT) theories
This illustration shows the two major mitochondrial DNA lineages. The lower branch includes only African populations. The upper branch has both African and non-African members.
The first educational product released by iPlant, DNA Subway (www.dnasubway.org) presents complex scientific tools and data in an intuitive and appealing interface, and makes high-level genome analysis broadly available to students and educators. "Riding"
