New Information From Anthropology.net

This weekend I wrote about an article that appeared in LifeScience entitled “DNA Kits: Secrets of Your Past or Scientific Scam?” The article made some strong negative statements about genetic genealogy, and I took the opportunity to discuss the issues it raised.

Soon after, my concerns were echoed at Anthropology.net in “Anthropologist Meredith Small says DNA testing is a scam.” The author had many of the same concerns, and also attempted to explain the science behind the tests.

If you’re interested in learning more about the science, or furthering the discussion we’ve started, please feel free to leave a comment here or at Anthropology.net.
