Sarah Tishkoff's (PARC Research Associate) recent paper in Genome Biology and a paper in the journal Cell are cited in an article in Science, "Africans Begin to Take the Reins of Research into Their Own Genomes," which includes an interactive map that provides a snapshot of genomics research locations. Tishkoff and other geneticists say that they have only just begun mapping the genomes of Africa's many diverse ethnic groups and populations. Tishkoff says "this year she hopes to publish on 180 more African genomes."
