Eske Willerslev at the 2012 DOE JGI Genomics of Energy and Environment Meeting

'Eske Willerslev from the University of Copenhagen on "Understanding Historical Human Migration Patterns and Interbreeding Using the Ancient Genomes of a Palaeo-Eskimo and an Aboriginal Australian" at the 7th Annual Genomics of Energy & Environment Meeting on March 21, 2012 in Walnut Creek, Calif.'

"Asians are closer to Europeans than they are to aboriginal Australians, but at the same time aborigine Australians are closer to Asians than they are to Europeans." (23:10)

At the end, Willerslev mentions "we are also doing the genome of Clovis, the oldest skeleton in the Americas". I have no idea which skeleton in particular he's talking about, but any Paleo-Indian genome should be informative.

Sounds like he's doing a bad Schwarzenegger imitation.
