Genoraphic Project searches for answers about humans

Posted: Updated:

Using advanced DNA analysis and working with indigenous communities, Dr. Spencer Wells, Genographic Project director is attempting to answer fundamental questions about where humans originated and how we came to populate the Earth.

Wells joined us in the studio with more information on the project and how this information could change what we think we know about our own backgrounds.

The project aims to answer the basic question "where do we come from?" by studying the genetic makers, or tiny changes in DNA that happen overtime that are unique to each person's lineage.
