This project investigates in the history of human migration by analyzing DNA samples from millions of people living today. Launched in April 2005, the collaboration between IBM and the National Geographic Society is creating a comprehensive knowledge base of our shared genetic heritage, a unique resource that continues to refine our understanding of human history.
Ultimately we all have come from one single origin , the single unknown parent ??? Our genes have a link to this missing record and some critical information about our ancestors from 60,000 years or even more .
As project director Dr. Spencer Wells said, “The greatest history book ever written is the one hidden in our DNA.”
