Researchers are using large genomics studies to learn more about the contributions Neanderthals made to human biology — including the tendency of modern humans to get asthma, skin diseases and depression. http://23me.co/AI5UNi
From skin disorders to the immune system, sex with archaic species changed Homo sapiens.

Two different studies published this week show that the first Americans may have migrated from different places at different times — and earlier than people thought. Read more from NPR: http://23me.co/sTXDMj
Scientists assume a wave of people from what's now Siberia crossed into North America via Alaska, maybe 23,000 years ago. Genetics support that, but may also suggest another wave from Australasia.

Former world champion sprinter, Colin Jackson is the first human to have nearly a quarter of his leg muscle fibers categorized as “super fast.” Do you have sprinter genes? http://23me.co/SRpL5w
A study found that a former world champion sprinter has a high abundance of the rare and powerful super fast-twitch muscle fibers.

Why yes, yes I do. Despite that, I'm not exactly what you'd consider a "sprinter".

We know there are genes related to bitter taste. What about sweet, sour, salt and umami? Is your love of sugar in your genes? http://23me.co/itAU6s
We know that a gene can determine how strongly we experience bitter flavors. Scientists wanted to know if this was also true for sweet. Their study shows genetics may affect our taste for sugar, too.

Very interesting question. Once a month I attempt to indulge in my sweet tooth, trying to avoid excess salt, but making sure to pile on the pepper, Black.

genetics just got personal
Introduction
23andMe was founded to empower individuals and develop new ways of accelerating research. The members of 23andMe have come together because we believe in the combined potential of genetics and the Internet to have a significant, positive impact.

23andMe is a web-based service that helps you read and understand your DNA. After providing a saliva sample using an at-home kit, you can use our interactive tools to shed new light on your distant ancestors, your close family and most of all, yourself
