A biogenetical study of 150 Angami Nagas aged 9 to 41 years, a changing human group along the Indo-Burma Border, has been conducted. The gene frequencies were pi = 0.18, p<? = 0.01, q = 0.10, r = 0.71, m = 0.54, Se (secretor) =0.67, T (taster for PTC) =0.76. There was no colour vision deficiency among the 85 males and 65 females studied. The Angami Nagas, the largest Naga tribe, are concentrated predominantly in the southern district of Kohima (Fig. 1). Since the Angamis represent an isolate… CONTINUE READING
