Following in the long tradition of research on human genetic diversity at UNM, faculty and students in the Molecular Anthropology laboratory conduct research that seeks to improve our understanding of the evolutionary processes that have molded human biological and cultural diversity at different places and times and to explore the larger social and scientific significance of these processes. Specific projects include human origins and dispersal, Native American prehistory, gene-language co-evolution, and group-level identity in New Mexico.
