Is it possible to determine the place of birth by DNA?
Yes. The new ethno-territorial descent method allowed the scientists from Tomsk, Russia to determine the exact district of origin. The scientist worked for 15 years to thoroughly explore the genetic material in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus. The result is a database with the unique genomes of 90 populations and 60 ethnical groups. The local law enforcement had succeeded to capture the criminals thanks to the new method.
