Jews and Genes: Who Are We? And How Did We Get Here?

Diana Muir Appelbaum and Paul S. Appelbaum have done a fascinating round-up for The Jerusalem Post of what genetics research reveals about the origins of various Jewish sub-populations.

While there’s not much new for people who closely follow news about this area of research, the Appelbaums’ article is great because is puts all the data together in one space and explains the implications very clearly.

It’s well worth reading.
