The genetics of Mexico recapitulates Native American substructure and affects biomedical traits

[Population] genetics of Mexico by @cdbustamante lab Has groups as divergent from each other as Europeans v Asians

We found striking genetic stratification among indigenous populations within Mexico at varying degrees of geographic isolation. Some groups were as differentiated as Europeans are from East Asians.
Pre-Columbian genetic substructure is recapitulated in the indigenous ancestry of admixed mestizo individuals across the country.

The genetics of indigenous Mexicans exhibit substantial geographical structure, some as divergent from each other as are existing populations of Europeans and Asians.
