Human Genetic Diversity and the Nonexistence of Biological Races

Human genetic variation is the genetic differences in and among populations. There may be multiple variants of any given gene in the human population alleles , a situation called polymorphism. No two humans are genetically identical. Even monozygotic twins who develop from one zygote have infrequent genetic differences due to mutations occurring during development and gene copy-number variation. As of , there are a total of million known variants from sequenced human genomes. Alleles occur at different frequencies in different human populations.

In this review, we focus on the biogeographical distribution of genetic variation and address whether or not populations cluster according to the popular concept of 'race'. We show that racial classifications are inadequate descriptors of the distribution of genetic variation in our species. Although populations do cluster by broad geographic regions, which generally correspond to socially recognized races, the distribution of genetic variation is quasicontinuous in clinal patterns related to geography.

In fact, a clear concept of race has never been clearly established by biology or ethnology, being rather an assumption in theories like that of Gobineau, who claimed the initial diversity of humanity as an a priori datum.

In this paper, we show that this low value reflects strong biases that result from violating hidden assumptions that define FST.

In this paper, we show that this low value reflects strong biases that result from violating hidden assumptions that define FST. These limitations on FST are demonstrated algebraically and in the context of analyzing dinucleotide repeat allele frequencies for a set of eight loci genotyped in eight human groups and in chimpanzees. In our analyses, estimates of FST fail to identify important variation. By relaxing the underlying statistical assumptions, the results for chimpanzees become consistent with common knowledge, and we see a richer pattern of human genetic diversity. Some human groups are far more diverged than would be implied by standard computations of FST, while other groups are much less diverged. We discuss the relevance of these findings to the application of biological race concepts to humans. Four different race concepts are considered: typological, population, taxonomic, and lineage.

Human Genetic Diversity and the Nonexistence of Biological Races

Humans exhibit biological diversity. Cognitively, humans also have a natural desire to categorize objects and other humans in order to make sense of the world around them. Since the birth of the discipline of biological anthropology , we have been interested in studying how humans vary biologically and what the sources of this variation are. Before we tackle these big problems, this first begs the question: Why should we study human diversity? There are certainly academic reasons for studying human diversity.

Human genetic variation

The relationship between race and genetics is relevant to the controversy concerning race classification. In everyday life, many societies classify populations into groups based on phenotypical traits and impressions of probable geographic ancestry and cultural identity—these are the groups usually called "races" in countries like the United States, Brazil, and South Africa. Patterns of variation of human genetic traits are generally clinal , with more abrupt shifts at places where steady gene flow is interrupted.

Слишком поздно. Мы упустили что-то очень важное. На экране ВР у входа толпились и множились хакеры, число их за последние минуты удвоилось. Теперь оно начало расти в геометрической прогрессии.

Немедленно. Соши побежала к своему терминалу. Джабба нередко прибегал к ВР, что в компьютерных кругах означало виртуальная реальность, но в АНБ это сокращение имело несколько иной смысл - визуальная репрезентация. В мире технических служащих и политиков, имеющих чрезвычайно разные уровни понимания, визуальная репрезентация нередко была единственным способом что-либо доказать: взмывающая вверх кривая производит куда более сильное впечатление, чем целые тома рассуждений. Джабба понимал, что ВР текущего кризиса со всей наглядностью объяснит то, что он хотел сказать.

Тем не менее риск велик: если нас обнаружат, это, в сущности, будет означать, что он своим алгоритмом нас напугал. Нам придется публично признать не только то, что мы имеем ТРАНСТЕКСТ, но и то, что Цифровая крепость неприступна. - Каким временем мы располагаем. Стратмор нахмурился: - Танкадо намерен назвать победителя аукциона завтра в полдень.

    Attempts to establish a biological basis for classifying human races into definable groups, arranged hierarchically from most advanced to least advanced, have a long and sordid history.
