The Genographic Project is a five-year effort of the National Geographic Society in partnership with IBM to collect and analyze more than 100,000 DNA samples, creating a database of anthropological genetic information in order to trace the origins and movement of the human race. This radio broadcast discusses the project goals of mapping human migration and locating more precisely the origin of our common ancestor, a man who lived in Africa 60 thousand years ago. It notes that genetic markers are more prevalent in Africa and what people may learn by participating in the project. The clip is 5 minutes in length.
