The genetic origins of Asians – I missed out this interesting paper on account of being in Hanoi at the time, and it wasn’t until I read this news from the Philippines that I was alerted to it. The paper presents a large-scale survey of genetic diversity in Asia, and posits that there was one migration out of Africa into Asia, the East Asian populations originated from Southeast Asian ones, and there is strong relationship between language, geography and ancestry.
