The National Geographic Society and IBM launched a research initiative to trace the migratory history of humans.
The Genographic Project will use laboratory and computer analysis of DNA contributed by hundreds of thousands of people to map how the Earth was populated.

Scientific evidence suggests that the human species ultimately traces back to Africa. But other questions remain. For example, how did we migrate and populate the world? The Genographic Project aims to uncover some of these mysteries and discover the details of how we journeyed around the world.
What a fascinating project.
