Indigenous Genetics Important?

Especially for the North American continent.  Disease, environment,etc.  Founder genetic studies are well known all over the world and indigenous North Americans should be encouraged to participate.  The cost is well under  $100.00 and the participant can opt into different studies.  It can be very interesting and good way to start into sciences.

A nice study to see would be time affects on indigenous genetics.  Disease, environment, etc.  A comparison could be made on current residents – Aboriginal migrations from China, ‘Polynesia,’ S. America, etc. Other comparisons could be made from Australia, etc.
