In the latest episode of the Genetics Unzipped podcast, we’re looking at a genetic history of the Americas. We chat with Jennifer Raff about her new book, Origin: The Genetic History of the Americas, covering the controversies surrounding how humans first migrated to the continent. plus Krystal Tsosie tells us about some of the modern day issues about how Native American genomes are used in genetic research.
