Direct genetic evidence of founding population reveals story of first Native Americans

(St John’s College, University of Cambridge) Direct genetic evidence of the earliest Native Americans has been identified for the first time, enabling researchers to answer long-standing questions about how the Americas were first populated. They suggest that people entered the continent in a single migratory wave around 20,000 years ago. They also identify a previously unknown Native American population called Ancient Beringians.
