Out of Asia: Ancient genome lays to rest origins of Americas’ first humans

The genome of a child who died some 12,600 years ago in Montana — the oldest known human remains from North America — has been sequenced for the first time.
The young boy’s genetic blueprint reveals that the Americas’ first human inhabitants came from Asia, not Europe, laying to rest a long-standing mystery.
Conducted by a consortium of scientists led by the University of Copenhagen and including Drs Andrea Manica, Anders Eriksson and Vera Warmuth at the University of Cambridge, the study is published in Nature.
