Since the appearance of modern humans in Africa ~200,000 years ago, we have migrated around the globe and accumulated genetic variations that affect our appearance, skin color, food tolerance, and susceptibility to different diseases. This book provides a state-of-the-art view of human genetic variation and what we can infer from it, surveying the genetic diversity seen in Africa, Europe, the Americas and India, and discussing how this new knowledge can be used to improve human health in the era of personalized medicine.
