DNA and Race
Name: K. L. Bee
Is it possible to tell the race of a person from their DNA?
No - Dr. Francis Collins, head of the Human Genome Project, says that there
is no evidence so far that would distinguish DNA from one race as opposed to
Ellen S. Mayo
NO! There are more individual differences between people of the same race,
than there are differences between the races. These discoveries more than
any other, should show that race is (was) just an environmental adaptation,
and that we truly are all one species.
