"The map, constructed with genetic information from 30,000 African Americans, has a resolution so high it is now the world's most accurate genetic map, said David Reich, professor of genetics at Harvard Medical School and co-leader of the study.

"The new map is the first to include thousands of African Americans. Most past genetic maps have been developed using people of European ancestry.

"'Although people of African and European ancestry are genetically quite similar to each other, this will help to localize genes in DNA from people of all racial and ethnic groups,' Wilson said."

"In an extraordinary scene, barely noticed in America this week amid coverage of the enormous oil spill and the New York bomb plot, Mr Towler, a 52-year-old musician, walked free from a Cleveland court after spending more than half his life in prison for a crime of which he always maintained his innocence and which DNA analysis proved he did not commit.

His case is not unique, but the way it ended was uniquely moving. It may serve to galvanise a national movement of lawyers and activists who have used DNA evidence to free more than 250 inmates since 1992, almost all of them black men, but who have so far lacked the resources to tackle thousands of other cases in which experts’ fear of “junk science” and racial bias have produced unsafe convictions."

Shocker - not. "Black Americans are 10 times more likely to be imprisoned for illegal drug offenses than whites, even though both groups use and sell drugs at the same rate, according to a study released on Tuesday."

Awesome article here in which Metcalf rips apart Saletan's recent Slate article about race and IQ: "Saletan's analogy implies that the conflict over race, intelligence, and genetics is a conflict between science and superstition."

"One of the most controversial issues is the ability of the tests to determine the country or the ethnic group of origin for African-Americans or Native Americans."

"The notion that race is more than skin deep, they fear, could undermine principles of equal treatment and opportunity that have relied on the presumption that we are all fundamentally equal."
