The first was, "Proportionally more deleterious genetic variation in European than in African populations," and the second was, "Genotype, haplotype and copy-number variation in worldwide human populations." Not to be outdone by Nature, Science... Continue Reading →

In the comments, I was disgusted to read Martin throw in this rhetorical line in his comment, "Genetics have long ago shown... Continue Reading →
