Although a recent field of scientific study, genomics research has a strong connection to the ancient history of our world. With genetic research, scientists can turn back the clock tens of thousands of years to provide new and unknown connects to modern humans and the secrets locked in their DNA.
The findings aren’t limited to the human genetic history. With new findings comes new understanding of how the cultural events shape future generations. The makeup of specific ethnic populations is an ever-evolving aspect of human life – they grow, shrink, move, and interact with other groups, building the foundation for future generations’ genetic codes.
Three recent discoveries in particular have redefined understanding of ancient populations, providing answers to questions about the origins of entire ethnicities, and opening the door to new ways to accurately study and analyze the genetic history books.
In 2016 there were 216 million incidents of malaria contraction in over 90 countries. Since 2015, that’s five million additional cases. And lucky us, we’re in the throes of mosquito season. Although 90% of malaria infections are attributed to Africa, the United States isn’t in the free and clear. Although we’ve managed to eliminate contraction of Malaria within the US, 22,029 patients were hospitalized for malaria in 2014. The rate of contraction among travelers is quite substantial, and most common in black males aged 25-44. (Attributed mainly to first and second generations of African decent.)
