Canadian #DNA lab knew its paternity tests identified the wrong dads, but it kept selling them

Wow, what this company did to these families is so terrible! And the story reflects so horribly on everyone involved in genetics, prenatal testing, private labs, etc.

I'm grateful for people like the ex-employees who were willing to speak up, and also for CBC for doing this kind of investigation.

Happy birthday to Canadian geneticist Irene Ayako Uchida (1917-2013)! She is shown surrounded by chromosones, with anomalies (pink arrows) due to radiation exposure, based on 1 of her research papers. A strand of DNA is hidden in the image (her watchband).⁠

Uchida didn’t set out to be a scientist. She was studying English literature at UBC, before she was interned with other Canadians of Japanese heritage during WWII. 🧵1/

Genetic analysis has shed light on a long-standing mystery surrounding the fates of President George Washington’s younger brother Samuel and his kin. Two of Samuel’s descendants and their mother were recently identified from skeletal remains found in unmarked burials dating back to the 1880s, CNN Reports:

We lost our tails, and gained a possible birth defect. The complexities of our genetics.

When the ancestor of all terrestrial vertebrates crawled from the sea onto land, she had a tail. Our primate ancestors had tails. In fact, many primates still do. So where did our tails go?

In my latest for @CNN I spoke with the scientists who recently identified the genetic crossroads where hominoids—humans and great apes—took one route, and our tails took another.

Population genomics of post-glacial western #Eurasia | Nature

“Our analyses revealed a ‘great divide’ genomic boundary extending from the Black Sea to the #Baltic.

Large-scale ancestry shifts occurred in the west as farming was introduced, including near-total replacement of hunter-gatherers in many areas, whereas no substantial ancestry shifts happened east of the zone during the same period. “

Elevated genetic risk for multiple sclerosis emerged in steppe pastoralist populations | Nature

“Here, by using a large ancient genome dataset from the period to the Bronze Age2, along with new and post-Medieval genomes, we show that the genetic risk for rose among pastoralists from the Pontic steppe and was brought into Europe by the Yamnaya-related migration approximately 5,000 years ago. “

Super interesting news about (relatively recent) human evolution and our long lost Denisovian friends.

among other things, today I learned that you can get 'free dna' out of the lose stuff around possible habitation sites (?!)
