The first African genome came from a skeleton found in Ethiopia

A retraction has been placed in Nature online regarding research previously published in Oct 2015. An error has forced researchers to go back on their claim that humans across the whole of Africa carry DNA inherited from Eurasian immigrants. This was based on research which sequenced the genome of a skeleton of a 4,500 man in Ethiopia – the first complete ancient genome from Africa.
