    The genetic history of current Italians is greatly influenced by geography and history. The ancestors of Italians are mostly pre-Indo-Europeans (Etruscans, Rhaetians, etc.) and Indo-Europeans (mostly Italic peoples, but also Greeks and Celts).. It is generally agreed that the invasions that followed for centuries after the fall of the Roman Empire did not significantly alter the local gene. The origin of the gene for the disorder in this population group has been traced over 14 generations from the present time to the days of the first free burghers at the Cape of Good Hope. Over affected individuals in more than 50 supposedly unrelated families have been found to be ancestrally related through a common progenitor in the 17th.

    The San peoples, also known as the Bushmen (also Sān, Saan, Sākhoen, Sonqua, and in Afrikaans: Boesmans, after Dutch Boschjesmens; and Saake in the Nǁng language), are members of various Khoe, Tuu, or Kx'a-speaking indigenous hunter-gatherer groups that are the first nations of Southern Africa, and whose territories span Botswana, Namibia, Angola, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Lesotho and South : <5, With regard to measuring the genetic variation observed among the indigenous people of the Western Hemisphere, molecular anthropologist Michael H. Crawford has stated this problem succinctly and repeatedly in his bookThe Origins of Native Americans: The Conquest and its sequelae squeezed the entire Amerindian population through a genetic.

    What is a genetic disease or disorder? Learn from a list of genetic diseases that are caused by abnormalities in an individual's genome. There are four main types of genetic inheritance, single, multifactorial, chromosome abnormalities, and mitochondrial inheritance. Genetic testing is available for some genetic diseases.   This argument, fleshed out with examples in Reich’s book, is that truculent and overly PC anthropologists, unobstructed by timid geneticists, are suppressing discussion of genetic variation.
