Book Talk: Oxford Geneticist, Brian Sykes at the NYG&B - SOLD OUT

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

brian sykes In DNA USA, Brian Sykes, a professor of human genetics at the University of Oxford, delivers the most comprehensive genetic portrait yet of our country.   

Genealogy is big business in American because we have an insatiable curiosity about forebears who fled, by necessity or by force, countries, and continents away. In his best-selling work, The Seven Daughters of Eve, Sykes showed how our mitochondrial DNA pointed to global matrilineal ancestors.

In DNA USA he also utilizes the Y (male) chromosomes to help settle arguments over lineage in our relatively young society. Sykes also uses genetic analysis to ponder other long-unsolved mysteries such as when and how humans first inhabited the Americas.
