It is well known that humans evolved in Africa roughly 200,000 years ago. But how did they disperse and colonize different lands? This is the question that three different teams of researchers began to study. In order to fully understand human history, geneticists sequenced genomes of 787 people from indigenous populations like Basques, Mayans and Cree Indians. Although early studies of DNA draw conclusions that all non-Africans are all closely related, the main question the geneticists had was how humans expanded and spread from Africa.
