Genographic team surveys New Zealand

The Genographic Team has been in New Zealand this week, working with people of Pacific as well as European and other heritages to trace their genetic history.

We will then take the tiny resulting DNA sample and compare it with the Genographic database, revealing the person’s place on the human family tree. In all our sampling sessions, we’ve gotten close to the incredibly diverse groups of people we’ve encountered.
